At home I found a package tossed up against the door. It was heavy and, I discovered, pink. The Chinese translation of Undercover. I like having a pink jacket all my own. I like the float of flowers.
I like this.
(A post-dinner post script. According to this Publishing Perspectives story, Shanghai 99 Readers' Cultare Co. is a rather large entity in China, having published 200 titles in 2008, 65% of which were translations of authors such as Philip Roth, Paul Auster, Stephen King, and Dan Brown. Its web site serves as one of China's largest online bookstores, and its book club is the only nationwide book club in the country, or at least was at the time this article was published.)
I like this even more.
