Unearthed footage: “Shock & Awe” scene wins Manhattan Monologue Slam (January 2010)

On 26, Jan 2013 | In Event, Non-Fiction Book, Play | By admin

Why post something that happened three years ago?

In the first place, we never saw this before.

In the second place, actor Garrett Hendricks helped develop “Shock & Awe.” He’s a friend and an excellent artist, and you’ll like what he does with this role.

Thirdly, and most important by far: the problems faced by U.S. veterans returning from deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan continue to weigh heavily on the American spirit.

And what’s being done about it? Not nearly enough. Read more…

Damon’s co-author Baiqiao Tang speaks at University of Rochester

On 02, Jan 2013 | In Event, Non-Fiction Book | By admin

What do a dropped book, a freshman in college, and Tiananmen Square have to do with one another?

Evidently, quite a bit.

These elements and many more began an unlikely synchonicity when University of Rochester freshman Se Hoon Kim saw a clerk drop a copy of “My Two Chinas” at a local Barnes and Noble.

“My Two Chinas”: Canadian reviewer calls it “mesmerizing and important”

On 10, May 2011 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

On May 7, 2011, Yvonne Crittenden of the Sudbury Star writes:

“This is the story of a very brave man. Baiqiao Tang is one of the best known young Chinese dissidents whose hopes for democracy in China were dashed after the massacre at Tiananmen Square in 1989. In this gripping and poignant story of his life in China and eventual escape to safety in the west, Tang shows how a brilliant, dedicated young student was instilled with a desire to bring human rights to his country. Tang’s name became legendary in the pro-democracy movement in China. He was imprisoned in a notorious jail in the crackdown after Tiananmen Square. He describes the horrendous treatment meted out by brutal guards who tortured, starved and routinely beat prisoners. Paroled, he now lives in New York City and carries the banner for his cause in exile. A mesmerizing and Read more…

“My Two Chinas” wins excellent Publishers Weekly review

On 11, Apr 2011 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

Publishers Weekly, abbreviated PW, is an American weekly trade news magazine targeted at publishers, librarians, booksellers and literary agents. Published continuously for the past 138 years, it has carried the tagline, “The International News Magazine of Book Publishing and Bookselling.” With 51 issues a year, the emphasis today is on book reviews.

First published in 1872, the magazine began as The Publishers’ Weekly (with an apostrophe), a collective catalog for publishers to pool their resources. That listing of books enabled booksellers to learn about forthcoming titles, and eventually the publication expanded to include features and articles.

They’ve written a glowing review of my latest book, “My Two Chinas.”

My review of “Death by China – A Global Call to Action”

On 01, Apr 2011 | In Non-Fiction Book | By admin

My friend Greg Autry asked me to read and comment on his forthcoming book with Peter Navarro. “Deaty by China – A Global Call to Action” is a stunning read, and I urge you to order it at once if you have any interest in China or global politics. You won’t find a more cogent breakdown of the issues facing the current and forthcoming synchronization of East and West. Or, as I say in my review blurb:

“Be forewarned: once you start reading, you won’t want to stop. Death by China lays bare the pivotal, oft overlooked, and sometimes blatantly hidden moves in a massive global chess game. Navarro and Autry have winded the horn, calling the free world to act on behalf of its interests and future. Impressively, they call China as well.”
 
Damon DiMarco, author of Tower Stories: An Oral History of 9/11 and co-author of My Two Chinas: The Memoir of a Chinese Counterrevolutionary with Baiqiao Tang.
