Description: Jan Wong, a Canadian of Chinese descent, went to China as a starry-eyed Maoist in 1972 at the height of the Cultural Revolution. A true believer -- and one of only two Westerners permitted to enroll at Beijing University -- she renounced rock and roll, hauled pig manure in the paddy fields, and turned in a fellow student who sought her help in getting to the United States.

Red China Blues is Wong's startling -- and ironic -- memoir of her rocky six-year romance with Maoism (which crumbled as she became aware of the harsh realities of Chinese communism), her dramatic firsthand account of the devastating Tiananmen Square uprising, and her engaging portrait of the individuals and events she covered as a correspondent in China during the tumultuous era of capitalist reform under Deng Xiaoping. In a frank, captivating, deeply personal narrative, she relates the horrors that led to her disillusionment with the "worker's paradise". And through the stories of the people -- an unhappy young woman who was sold into marriage; China's most famous dissident; a doctor who lengthens penises -- Wong reveals long-hidden dimensions of the world's most populous nation. In setting out to show readers in the Western world what life is like in China, and why we should care, she reacquaints herself with the old friends -- and enemies -- of her radical past, and comes to terms with the legacy of her ancestral homeland.
