ABOUT THIS BOOK
Carlos Rojas focuses on the trope of “homesickness” in China—discomfort caused not by a longing for home but by excessive proximity to it. This inverse homesickness marks a process of movement away from the home, conceived of as spaces associated with the nation, family, and individual body, and gives rise to the possibility of long-term health.
