The New York Times declared that A. Zee "writes with wry, poetic humor," The Washington Post described his writing as "brash, breezy, and authoritative," and Publishers Weekly called him "an extraordinary writer: playful, inspired, and brilliant." His book, An Old Man's Toy, was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction.
The London Times Educational Supplement praised A. Zee's writing in his technical book Unity of Forces in the Universe as "crisp, thought-provoking, and often witty."
Here is a review of my writing style that may cause my ego as a writer to burst. It so happens that Nabokov's "Pale Fire" is one of my favorite books of all times.
A primer and history in writing Chinese characters, Chinese poetry, a cookbook, cultural tidbits and humor. Explanations! Remember Vladimir Nabokov's 'Pale Fire'? A. Zee has a similar accomplishment: a book sufficiently original that it is arguably a new genre. Treat yourself!
