PRAISE For Drunk in China

I have learned so much from Derek Sandhaus over the years, and Drunk in China is no exception. It’s not just about baijiu—although it offers a master class on the subject. It’s about China and its history, culture, and relationship with the West, told through the perspective of a witty, generous storyteller.
