110 IN THE SHADE: Stranger in a Strange Land

In our very democratic Imperial County Library Book Club, we take turns recommending books. You are invited to join.

During this past month we have read my choice, “River Town: Two Years on the Yangtze,” by Peter Hessler. It was on an Amazon book list, and it looked inviting. Granted, I was missing China, a visit I had made a year ago. So I was surprised at the unexpected memories this sensitive and insightful book about Sichuan Province would resurrect.
