The Year I Smelled Like Milk : Stories from Beijing and Beyond
"Your book is wonderful. You capture the eternal in the ephemeral, the larger picture in the small incident." -Barbara Hampton, co-author of Honey for a Teen's Heart. "Hobson has a knack for pulling you through the cultural gap and introducing 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, full of adventures, 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. "I've already got my book club ready to put it on the reading list. There are so many themes explored, and you don't leave any stone unturned." -Math teacher, MD. "After reading I felt like I'd gone to the places the author visited, seeing and hearing the same sights and sounds. His unique ability to bring his experiences in China to life makes this book a pleasure!" -Chinese language teacher, MD.
