From Turpan to Kashgar: The bus is not suitable for foreigners (An extract from Adriaan van Dis' ‘A Barbarian in China')
(Adriaan van Dis) The Low Countries - 2006, № 14, pp. 46-47
'A Barbarian in China' is Van Dis' travel report about his journey along the silk route. The title of the book, which became a bestseller in the Netherlands, recalls Henri Michaux' 'Un barbare en Asie' (published in 1933, revised in 1945 and translated by Sylvia Beach as A Barbarian in Asia in 1949), a pithy, incisive, cutting look at 1930s Asia through this Belgian's eyes.
