Description

Fiction. XIAN DYAD is the record of one man's attempt to chart what Anaïs Nin referred to as the "cities of the interior." In this extraordinarily perceptive book, author Jason Price Everett struggles to reveal and understand something of his own personal topography, even as he conveys the reader on a sweeping real-life journey from north-central China to southeast Asia. From gray days and inebriated nights at a university in Xi'an to heatstroke in the ruins of Ayutthaya, from concentrated observation of a Khmer classical dance class at the School of Fine Arts in Phnom Penh to crossing the Mekong River by boat in order to reconcile a Vietnam of old movies with the Vietnam of firsthand experience, the tropes of foreign travel are used to systematically dissect and illuminate the relationships between ideas and individuals as the inner life and the outer life alternate in their mutual depiction of each other. An intimate portrait of the sensitive mind in temporary exile, XIAN DYAD is the perfect book for those who compulsively travel, only to meet themselves at the destination.
