Jim Di Bartolo: The Boy Who Became A Dragon – A Biography of Bruce Lee Signing!

Bruce Lee was born on November 27, 1940 – in both the hour and the year of the dragon. Almost immediately, he was plunged into conflict: as a child in Hong Kong as it was invaded and occupied by the Japanese; as the object of discrimination and bullying; and as a teenager grappling against the influence of gangs. As the world knows, Lee found his salvation and calling through kung fu – first as a student, then as a teacher, and finally as a global star. The Boy Who Became a Dragontells his story in brilliant comic form.

But there’s a catch — each leg covers a different period in time. In addition to keeping the cars on the often-questianable (sometimes nonexistent) roads and staying ahead of competition, the drivers will have to contend with the world outside: medieval warriors, dinosaurs, natural disasters, even the far-flung future… it’s all a possibility.…
