I’m pleased to announce the second Expat book, Expat in China: The Chengdu Blues, which in this case is the prequel. It was a life-changing year in China for Heidi and me in 1988-1989 that created the impetus for the later trip. This new book is partly a glimpse into the just-emerging China at the time of the Tiananmen Square protests, and partly a coming of age story for two young Americans. The print book is available in print now on Amazon, and for Kindle, Nook, or iPad.
Expat in China: A Family Adventure, the story of our family’s year living in Chengdu, China, has been available in both print and ebook versions for a year now. One reviewer says, “Not since Bill Holmes’ groundbreaking work Coming Home Crazy or Mark Salzman’s iconic Iron and Silk has there been a book written from one person’s perspective as insightful, genuine, endearing and hilarious as Greg Rhodes’ family odyssey with his wife Heidi and children Tommy, age 10 and Nikki, age 13.” I’ve heard from many readers how much they have enjoyed the book.
Take a look at both books, and please let me know what you think.
