Standard Deviations: Growing Up and Coming Down in the New Asia by Karl Taro Greenfeld [in AsianWeek]

Standard DeviationsAt 23, Greenfeld “set off for Asia to become a writer, intrigued by the lurid tales of booms, busts, drugs, sex, violence, magic.” Part memoir, part social history, all wild ride, Deviations catches glimpses of a changing, bursting, capitalistic Asia from the late ’80s through the end of the 20th century with bad-boy Greenfeld as guide.
