Han Han is 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. In this collection of essays, he tackles everything from Internet culture in a country that censors the Internet to his own escapades driving around with fake police IDs and a megaphone, and from whether China is ready for democracy to going back for one incredibly awkward middle school reunion.
