    Dear Christian, I read your book of Wild West of China, loved your description of the geographical feature of the region. Also, watched your video talk about the wei wu er ethnic group, the one lasted about 40 minutes. You dig deep in to the issue. Hope you are not barred from visiting China. Did you also write a short book on music? How about write to me through my email which I passed to the website? Any plan to visit China in 2019? Hope we can have direct conversation through emails. Hope you and yours are healthy and happy. My best wishes! YY

    Would you let me know how to write to Christian Tyler directly regarding his book, Wild West of China, the Taming of Xinjiang? Thank you in advance for your help!

    Dear Mr. Tyler- I am a cataloger at the Library of Congress. In our database, it appears that we have more than one Christian Tyler; in order to break the conflict, I would like to have your birth year and/or middle initial, so that I can create a distinctive heading for you, as author of “Wild West China”. The author of “Figure in the landscape” is a different person, correct?

    I know I am late to the dance, but i just read Christian Tyler’s essay and the footnote. If he is still working on the political dissidents book, I’d love to chat with him about dissidents, poets, and journalists in Cuba, among which my father, Rogelio Fabio Hurtado, is one. Hoping you can still forward this message to Christian.

    Dear Christian Tyler, Thank you for your review of Doctor Zhivago. A footnote said that you are currently researching a book on political dissidents. I have a small library of about 100 books on the Soviet Union dealing with that subject, mostly out of print, which I am seeking to dispose of. It would be a shame if the collection were to be broken up. Can you think of a good home for them?
