S. Michael Choi has spent the last decade examining the socio-political revolutionary changes on the Asian continent. From Shanghai to Tokyo, his keen eye for detail and observations about the subtlety of cultures that are in transition from the Post-War era towards influences in Americana are captured in visceral narratives that transcend the beauty of the ordinary life. His prose, often humourous and filled with Classical influences display a 'bon mot' witticism and yet a slipstream aesthetic combining every day life with the near sci-fi..
S. Michael Choi is a graduate of Columbia University and is currently climbing the mountains of China.

The writing needs to be smoothed out as some sentences are clearly awkward. Overall, however, the story is quite intriguing.
