About the Book

HOW I LOST MY KIDNEYS IN CHINA reveals the true story of an intrepid explorer who, by chance, studied Mandarin in 1987. Three years later, he made his way to the esteemed halls of Peking University, followed by a two-year stint in Taiwan. After relocating to Hong Kong in 1994, he found employment touring over five hundred factories in fifteen provinces over twenty years. Along the way, zealous factory staff attempted to test his tolerance with grain alcohol called “baijiu.” One by one, he fought them off to be the last man standing. When off the job, Randall ran around Asia with a running group called the Hash House Harriers while splitting his time between Shanghai and Hong Kong. But his high-flying adventure took a sharp turn when the hard-drinking contributed to the failure of his kidneys. From then on, he was at the mercy of the socialist health care system of the People’s Republic.
