About the Author
After an adolescence spent in Illinois and Missouri, Christopher Howard set off with the Peace Corps for Mongolia in the late 1990s, before returning home with a severe case of giardiasis. His short story "How to Make Millions in the Oil Market," published in McSweeney's and inspired by his time abroad, was nominated for the 2008 National Magazine Award in Fiction. Along with Jodi Picoult, he was one of two authors selected to provide a short story for the launch of Amazon Singles in January 2011. Howard lives in Illinois.
Reviews
"With Tea of Ulaanbataar, Chris Howard takes us to a rarely seen corner of the world, and then takes us further, into a spooky, trippy, gritty realm that is entirely his own." -Eli Horowitz, Publisher of McSweeney's


"Like Robert Bingham's Lightning on the Sun, Tea of Ulaanbaatar is a merciless dissection of lost young American volunteers drifting through a violent and absurd third-world capital." -Stewart O'Nan, author of Last Night at the Lobster and Songs for the Missing


"It's youthful idealism gone wild in Howard's striking debut . . . . [T]ight and witty writing." -Publishers Weekly


"An accomplished novel with a keen sense of atmosphere and description." -Barbara Hoffert, Library Journal
