Full description: 

Funny and shrewd (The New York Times Book Review) essays from China's most popular young troublemaker about growing up millennial and causing social and political scandal today.Han Han owes equal debt to Jack Kerouac and Justin Timberlake (The New Yorker). He's the most influential (and provocative) young person in China, equally beloved and reviled for the satirical wit with which he takes on everyone from corrupt politicians to ludicrous protesters and everything from Internet culture in a country that censors the Internet to the question of whether China is ready for democracy. Evocative and funny and occasionally electrifying (The Wall Street Journal), The Problem with Me provides an insider's look into Chinese culture and politics (Publishers Weekly).

Biography: 

Born in 1982 to middle class parents, Han Han shot to fame at the age of seventeen with the publication of his debut novel, Triple Door, a runaway bestseller with over two million copies in print. Over the next fifteen years, he cemented his reputation as a director, singer, racecar driver, Internet celebrity, and public intellectual. The Problem with Me is the third of his books to appear in English, after This Generation and 1988: I Want to Talk with the World. He lives in Shanghai.
