I bought this book for our trip to Italy from an independent LA bookstore.

And I loved it!  I want to go to China more now than ever before.

There are 16 stories, each about one or more underground players that the author met and interviewed (names replaced of course).  The sections are prostitution (especially the bath houses) and homosexuality were most interesting, although I now want to see if there are any recordings on the net of any of the Chinese punk acts described in the book.

This is a great, fun read, highly recommended!
