That Man In Our Lives by Xu Xi

Literary Fiction and Creative Nonfiction

When Gordon Ashberry turns fifty, he decides to give all his money away. An opportunistic young Chinese writer learns of this and writes a book about his decision. The ensuing publicity sends Gordon into a self-imposed exile. A large cast of characters traverse the globe in search of this missing protagonist, a Gatsby-ish figure with Chinese characteristics. “Xu’s engrossing, whirlwind metafictional tale effectively demonstrates the far-reaching effects of politics and culture on the smallest, most personal aspects of our lives.” Publishers Weekly. $9.99 Kindle
