Two new Big in China pieces from very different sources, taking very different approaches, but I like them both a lot.
Swampland is Southern culture site that reviews Big in China and makes some interesting connections between China and the Southern USA. I found this to be a really thoughtful look at the book.
It would be hard to find a more different news publication than Global Times, which is essentially an official publication of the Chinese government, an English language competitor to or addition to China Daily. Writer Barry Cunningham came over to my house and did a very nice piece, focused on my thoughts and views of China. Give it a read.
