Product description

Review

"Anyone who has spent time in East Asia should enjoy AIEEYAAA! Learn Chinese the Hard Way. His good-natured yet revealing humour makes for a fun read and some coincidental pain-free language acquisition." -The East Asia Book Review

"Very funny and I learnt a few things too, despite the author's promise in the foreword that this wouldn't happen. Also, the book's introduction has one of the best descriptions of the differences between Chinese languages/dialects that I've ever read." -Pete Spurrier, Publisher, Blacksmith Books

"Honestly, I think this book is for everybody, from those whohave a passing curiosity about the Chinese language(s) to thosewho have studied the language of the Middle Kingdom for years and beenright in the middle of the linguistic fray that is this culture." -The Polyglotist

"The cartoons are well drawn and the ratio of laughs to non-laughs high. Although Feign has a disclaimer that this is not a real language book, but rather "a random assortment of words with gags attached," you will definitely learn something." -John Grant Ross, Bookish.asia

He has directed animated cartoons for Cartoon Network and Disney Television. His satirical books have been consistent bestsellers in his home base of Hong Kong, while his 'Lily Wong' comic strip was considered a bellwether of life and politics in the territory. His satirical commentary about the Hong Kong handover was Time Magazine's first-ever full-page cartoon essay. He earned his MFA in Writing from Pacific University, and received a MacDowell Fellowship from America's oldest artist colony. He is currently working on several books, including both humor and historical fiction. Larry lives on Lantau Island in Hong Kong with his wife, three dogs, and the occasional uninvited python.
