Overview

Sometimes you have to step pretty far off the beaten path in order to find your way back on.

Ed is a twenty-two-year-old misfit from New York. He quickly finds that with a liberal arts degree, the only thing he is qualified to do is teach English, and the only place where he is qualified to teach English is in...China.

In Shanghai, he befriends three like-minded expats and ditches the classroom for the city's devilish nighttime pursuits. After nearly drowning in an alcohol-fueled baby pool wrestling match, he begins to wonder whether he's on the right path. Who does he want to become? Maybe his unheralded school holds the answers.

China, Man is an outrageous true story. From study hall to seedy discos, come join Buddhist monks, business-savvy prostitutes, and gangly high school students all in pursuit of the answer to life's most fundamental question: Who am I?
