Interesting story of a man from 10th Century China stranded in 1980's Munich. Interesting and well written, it would be better if there was a glossary of the names he uses for different personal names. Some I guessed but others were impossible, and would probably require knowledge of German. Interesting look at the mores and social problems in the 1980's which have continued to today. Written in letter form (I know there's a word for that but my brain isn't helping with the spelling) to a friend back in China, of his own time it is well worth a read even if you do spend several hours trying to work out what the names are.
