In The New Yorker, Peter Hessler Goes West

Read Peter’s “Go West,” his New Yorker Personal History piece, about his return to the U.S. after living in China for fifteen yeards, never having lived here as an adult. Read as he changes his name while signing up for phone service and receives calls as Peter Chang, has some fun on a cold call with an NRA representative, then has his picture taken with a fake Elvis marathon runner in Vegas.
