Praise for Along Alien Roads
"A deeply moving autobiographical novel, spanning over a century of recent Chinese history. An exquisitely woven tapestry of memories by a Chinese-American surgeon, with roots from Canton, Shanghai and Beijing, traversing from Asia to America to Europe, between straight and gay, love and inevitable continual change, while sustaining the core of an Eastern spirit and making alienation an art of being."
An autobiographical novel of a Chinese American head and neck surgeon, spanning one and a quarter century of recent Chinese history and personages and a personal path from Asia to America. While maintaining an esprit from the East and a body in the West, the author traverses a path from straight to gay to bisexuality, love and inevitable continual change of some of his core.
Tsun Yuan Chen was born in Mainland China. He studied in Taiwan and Tokyo, before coming to the U.S. He now lives half time in Umbria and Provence, the rest of the year in San Francisco with his life partner.
