Summary and Preview
The first story is about a young depressed man, who lives a love story which he lets die. The second is about a student coming from a far province, who came to the city to prepare for exams to enter university. But he cannot adapt himself to the surroundings and goes mad.
Narcissistic and dark, Benjamin writes about and illustrates his life as a cartoonist and graffiti artist in Beijing's seedy rock-and-roll sub-culture. Showing a side of China rarely depicted in the West, this book pulses with the rhythm of the new urban Chinese youth.
