Repeat After Me

by Rachel DeWoskin
£8.99   paperback  Gerald Duckworth & Co Ltd (2010)

Repeat After Me by Rachel DeWoskin Aysha, a twenty-two-year-old New Yorker, is beginning to put the pieces of her life back in place after a nervous breakdown. Teaching an adult education class, she meets a young Chinese student named Da Ge - tortured, charismatic and just as unstable as she is - who flips her world upside-down once again.
 
In a love story that spans decades and continents, from the Tiananmen Square massacre to 9/11, New York City's Upper West Side to the terraced mountains of South China, Repeat After Me is a perceptive, funny and tragic tale of clashing cultures and troubled histories.

"A tender story of manic love and loss, this is a heartbreaking and uplifting novel with memorably off-kilter leads."
(Publishers Weekly)
"Cultures don’t so much collide as coalesce in DeWoskin’s sparkling debut novel... infusing her multicultural narrative with vibrant observations that glitter with laser-intense acuity, she demonstrates a smart, sophisticated literary agility."
