Synopses & Reviews
Award-winning journalist and bestselling author Jan Wong looks back on her body of work as a foreign correspondent in China in the late '80s and early '90s. Despite the fact that China continues to transform itself, Wong discovers that nothing really changes, and what she wrote then about love, work and living still holds, as do the conflicts over who rules, who survives, and who gets the bigger slice of Peking Duck. With wry humour and behind-the-scenes detail, Wong incorporates a selection of her articles published in The Globe and Mail
into a richly narrated journalistic adventure.
Jan Wong's first book, Red China Blues, was named one of Time magazine's top ten books of 1996 and remains banned in China.

She is also the author of two phenomenally successful books -- Red China Blues and Jan Wong's China. She lives with her family in Toronto, where she is currently a reporter and columnist for The Globe and Mail.
