If you want to understand China, take the train as the author of The Great Railway Bazaar, Paul Theroux did. In this book, Riding the Iron Rooster, he takes us through China. The book is full of adventure and a rich, warm memoir. He shares conversations about culture, writing novels, growing fruit and thousands of other details from everyday life. It is a true armchair adventure for any reader.
