Born in 1982 to middle class parents, Han Han shot to fame at the age of seventeen with the publication of his debut novel, Triple Door, a runaway bestseller with over two million copies in print. Over the next fifteen years, he cemented his reputation as a director, singer, racecar driver, Internet celebrity, and public intellectual. The Problem with Me is the third of his books to appear in English, after This Generation and 1988: I Want to Talk with the World. He lives in Shanghai.
"China's most popular blogger.... His manicured, swaggering persona
is a rebuke to the rumpled archetype of the Chinese intellectual,
and owes equal debt to Kerouac and Timberlake."
- The New Yorker
"Evocative and funny... occasionally electrifying."
- Wall Street Journal
"Han Han's writing on every topic combines charming storytelling, wise aphorisms, and serious analysis. This is a groundbreaking book for Anglophone readers, offering an insider's look into Chinese culture and politics."
- Publishers Weekly
"Funny and shrewd.... Han Han has interesting things to say."
- The New York Times Book Review
"Han Han's large readership is the best evidence we have of a broad survival of common sense in China."
- The New York Review of Books
"Funny and controversial... his personality does shine through."
- Library Journal
"China's top blogger for his acumen, humor, and scathing take."
"Han Han is a phenomenon of today's China who personifies a rapidly changing society."
- Jonathan Fenby, author of Tiger Head, Snake Tails: China Today, How It Got There and Where It Is Heading
