ImageTom Mangione came to China in 2007 for a brief stint as an intern working with factories in Dongguan, China. Here he discovered that he loved China, but maybe that the rough and tumble world of manufacturing wasn't for him (although man, does he have some stories). After that, he took off to Shanghai to study Mandarin, write and ponder what China is all about. He has been published in the Shanghai's HAL Literature's two anthologies Party Like It's 1984 and Middle Kingdom Underground.
