I Love Peter Hessler

Filed under: Little Words   Tagged: , , , ,

Hessler’s Letter From Beijing this week is yet another standout. He could write an entire issue, John Hersey-style, and I would be happy as a clam in black bean sauce.


Wouldn’t a clam in black bean sauce have reason to be somewhat less happy than the average clam? :)

A friend of mine comes from the same Missouri town as Hessler, and shares my (and, apparently, your) admiration for his work.
