The Problem with Me
By

Rating
Satirical essays from China s most popular young troublemaker about growing up millennial and causing social and political scandal today. Han Han is the most influential (and provocative) young person in China, equally beloved and reviled for the satirical wit with which he takes on everyone from corrupt politicians to ludicrous protestors. In this collection of essays, he tackles everything from Internet culture in a country that censors the Internet to his own escapades driving around with fake police IDs and a megaphone, and from whether China is ready for democracy to going back for one incredibly awkward middle school reunion. Humorous, daring, and unexpectedly inspiring, The Problem with Me will appeal to both those looking to understand twenty-first century China and those looking to laugh at human ridiculousness wherever they may find it."
