Description
(A 2001 New York Times Notable Book and Winner of the Kiriyama Book Prize) In 1996, Peace Corp volunteer Peter Hessler—a National Book Award finalist for Oracle Bones—became an English and American literature teacher in Fuling, China, a town on the Yangtze River that had not seen a foreigner in half a century. Even as the nation experienced such changes as the death of Deng Xiaoping and the British departure from Hong Kong, Hessler's immersion in off-the-beaten-trail China provided him with a unique window into a culture that is often inaccessible to outsiders. Deemed "a work of grace and profundity" by Esquire, this bestselling 2001 memoir was a New York Times Notable Book and the winner of the Kiriyama Book Prize.

"Suffused with candor, compassion, insights, and intimate knowledge, River Town is a wonderful read."—Ha Jin
