    A beautiful book that spans the mundane details of Crow s life to the grand historical arcs that Crow intersected with The portrayal of Crow seemed a little 2 dimensional, but maybe that goes with the territory of writing about this advertising man It s one of those rare books that is as nice to hold as it is to read Beautiful layout, design, and footnoting Paul French and the HK Press did a great job on this book Makes me almost wish I was living back in Shanghai.
