Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Middle Kingdom Underground is a daring publication, and a needed one. It reaches a spot amongst the often sugarcoated portrayals of China... it will stand there as a mockery, laughing and pointing at its naive neighbors."
Kirsti Jonson, Shanghai Talk

"As for the book, we got our grubby little hands on an advance copy. Expect dark tales of heroin addicts setting up magic mushroom growing factories in the remote mountains of Yunnan, hurried hand jobs through open hotel windows and overnight geniuses taking part in all-night, animalistic orgies. The perfect Christmas gift for your Gran, in other words."
That's Shanghai Magazine

"Story settings range from Beijing to Dali, but the book's heart is in Shanghai, a city author Dena Rash Guzman says is about 'taking what you want, and there is plenty to want.' You'll desperately wonder which stories are true, and you certainly won't soon forget the adventures and flashes of wisdom in this... original anthology."
Nick English, City Weekend Magazine
