Mitch Moxley—writer, journalist and Chinese Cosmo Bachelor of the Year candidate — chronicles half a decade in China, presenting the illustrated story of personally absurd encounters and reverence for a place undergoing profound change. Accompanied by excerpts from his book, Apologies to my Censor (released internationally July 2, 2013), a candidly honest account of his years working as a journalist in China, Moxley presents six years that coincide with China's emergence as a global superpower — and his transformation into his alter ego, Mi Gao, or Tall Rice.

Mitch Moxley has written on culture, travel and current affairs for publications including The Atlantic, The New York Times, TIME, Wall Street Journal, The Globe and Mail and others. He holds a master's degree in journalism from the University of Western Ontario and was previously a business reporter for the National Post in Toronto. Since coming to Beijing in 2007 and starting with the China Daily, he has fed a goat to a tiger, watched a bear ride a bicycle while wearing lingerie (he has witnesses) and crisscrossed the country reporting on human trafficking, environmental degradation and more.
