Claire Noble, author
During Claire Noble's inadvertent decade in Asia, there was one constant: she always ended up in the land of the absurd. In her shockingly personal and surprisingly poignant humorous memoir, Claire's witty prose delivers stories that range from hilarious to heartfelt. Claire ate maggots and smuggled parasites. She suffered through tortuous massages, mammograms and colonoscopies and lived to laugh about it. From a time-warped Shanghai neighborhood to a luxury Hong Kong high-rise, Claire charted a course through different cultures and new life roles, with unexpected discoveries around every corner. Join Claire for one laugh-out-loud misadventure after another as she learns that plans are often nothing more then good intentions, and a sense of humor is indispensable for surviving all that comes life’s way.
