THE LAST DAYS OF OLD BEI­JING

Parents + Kids - - Cover Story - Writ­ten by Michael Meyer

As the fu­ture of Bei­jing’s hu­tong's are once again un­der ques­tion, Meyer’s book about his ex­pe­ri­ences of be­ing the only laowai re­sid­ing in the war­ren of Dazha­lan in 2005 makes for fas­ci­nat­ing read­ing. Meyer's glimpse into col­or­ful, chaotic hu­tong life in a rapidly meta­mor­phos­ing city is as en­ter­tain­ing as it is en­light­en­ing.
