The Beijing Bookworm
"Tell my people my name is China, brother. Promise me that. Carve that in stone on a mountain in Shan Xi, in a liberated village, where the children walk to school and never have to eat grass, again. Where freedom is a full bowl of rice, where my people
live free from poverty and misery and despair. Tell my people my name is China."
The best bookstore in North China, the magnificent Beijing Bookworm, is proud to host Mike Tucker--poet, former mercenary and the only writer of our time compared to Hemingway--on Wednesday evening, November 8th, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. Mike Tucker, the only American writer to call out Petraeus, Mattis, the Pentagon and the CIA for the colossal American failure in counterterrorism since September 11th, will be giving an electrifying reading from his 17th book, CHIEFTAIN, followed by Q&A and book signing. The first novel by an American writer that is set in the guerrilla war in North China in the late 1930s, an epic mercenary saga and a searing meditation on justice, CHIEFTAIN rocks like a hurricane and is the most authentic, original and thrilling war novel of our time.
