Overview

Crazy things happen when cultures collide! Author Michael W. Hobson taught in Beijing for a year. From awkward conversations to struggles with public transportation to cycling across western China, The Year I Smelled Like Milk conveys how it felt to live in a nation so different from his own. Map, glossary, 180 photos. "The easy flow of the narrative is reminiscent of an oral storyteller." VOYA. "I found myself quoting from it for days." Mona Kerby, author, Owney the Mail-Pouch Pooch. "Captures the eternal in the ephemeral, the larger picture in the small incident." Barbara Hampton, co-author, Honey for a Teen's Heart. "Hobson pulls you through the cultural gap and introduces you to people you're glad to have met. If you're traveling to China, I can imagine no better book for reading on the trip." Software engineer, CA. "Informative, funny, even suspenseful! The writing tends to draw me into each situation and look at my own reactions, so that I actually learn a little about myself." Psychology teacher, MD.
