Peter Hessler's forthcoming COUNTRY DRIVING gets a starred Kirkus


"...The result is a remarkably detailed, engrossing account of China today. The human side of China’s great transformation, told with humor, affection and great insight."

Publisher's Weekly also gave it a starred review, saying: "In his latest feat of penetrating social reportage, New Yorker writer Hessler (Oracle Bones) again proves himself America's keenest observer of the New China."
