Foreign Babes in Beijing: Behind the Scenes of a New China

by Rachel DeWoskin - £8.99  Granta Books (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781862079175 | ISBN 10: 186207917x

Rachel DeWoskin arrived in Beijiing in 1994 to work for an American PR firm. Before long, though, she was starring as 'foreign babe' Jiexi in a twenty-episode television drama that was watched by an estimated six hundred million viewers.
 
In Foreign Babes in Beijing the author describes her years in China from the unique viewpoint of a foreigner experiencing culture shock in real life, while playing out a parallel version on screen.

"For a real insider's look at life in modern China, readers should turn to the work of Rachel DeWoskin...she shows a society that is bother immutable and developing at warp speed."
(Economist)
