Jacob Acerbi

Jacob Acerbi is an American memoirist, historian, philosopher, and scientist. His best-known book is the 2020 popular memoir about his life in the city of Wuhan, “Chaos and Grime: A Year in the Life of a Chinese City.” Widely regarded for its unique style and thriller-like dramatization of complex, controversial, and true subject matter, “Chaos and Grime” was banned by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China almost immediately upon its release. Since its publication, the book, its author, and even some of its reviewers have been the target of a campaign of slander, harassment, and intimidation by “wumao’s,” provocateurs serving the interests of the Communist Party. The publication of the book, which explores coverups of crimes, among other subject matter, coincided with the Communist Party’s and World Health Organization’s initial coverup of the COVID-19 Pandemic, which originated in Wuhan.
