A century ago, outsiders saw China as a place where nothing ever changes. Today, the country has become one of the most dynamic regions on earth. In Oracle Bones, Peter Hessler explores the human side of China's transformation, viewing modern-day China and its growing links to the Western world through the lives of a handful of ordinary people. In a narrative that gracefully moves between the ancient and the present, the East and the West, Hessler captures the soul of a country that is undergoing a momentous change before our eyes.
"A brilliant observer with a novelist's ear for character and dialogue, Hessler is both fascinating and funny." (Entertainment Weekly)
"A remarkable travelogue documenting aspects of a country still little understood." (Kirkus)
"Engaging.... Acutely observed, moving, frequently funny and a perspicacious X-ray of China's zeitgeist." (South China Morning Post)
