Book now available in English — and we’re in China!

For the first time ever, my original English manuscript is now available as an e-book for those of you with advanced English skills who want to read my own words as I wrote them in English. And the English-Chinese version is terrific for those who are learning English – and those interested in analyzing, discussing and arguing about the many interesting linguistic and cultural problems which arose during the translation process. I spent many hours on the phone with translator Wang Jianbo discussing these issues.


Joy Chen is a globally-acclaimed creator of books, movies, videos and other pop-culture media for China.
