Qiu Xiaolong was born in Shanghai. The Cultural Revolution began in his last year of elementary school, and out of school, out of work, he studied English by himself in a local park. In 1977, he began his studies at East China Normal University in Shanghai, and then the Chinese Academy of Social Science in Beijing. In 1988, he came to Washington University in St. Louis as a Ford Foundation fellow to do a project on Eliot, but after the Tiananmen tragedy of 1989, he decided to stay on. He lives there still with his wife and daughter.

I enjoyed hearing the author read some of these poems at an event I attended. I may have to read the Inspector Chen mysteries for greater context, but helpfully, many of the poems here have a short explanation after the poem describing the circumstance that inspired Inspector Chen to write them.

Better than the first book in the series. Inspector/Poet Chen searches for a woman who has disappeared. Via the mystery, the author explores China's dive into capitalism and its attendant issues such as inequality, human trafficking, gangs, political corruption and the treatment of women. Really enjoyed the poetic interludes and the descriptions of the Shanghai geography and food. If you like Donna Leon's Brunetti series, you'll probably appreciate this one.

Bit heavy on the poetry, but it added to a fairly standard plot & characters with a nice Chinese flavor

A much more wobbly and erratic plot, but one with likely parallels to the author's life.
