Summary
"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'n'roll, hauled pig manure in the paddy fields, and turned on a fellow student who sought her help on getting to the United States. Startling, ironic, and deeply personal, [the book] follows Wong's rocky romance with Maoism from the Number One Machine Tool Factory to Tiananmen Square. And through the individuals and events she encounters during her years as a correspondent in China, [she] reveals long-hiden dimensions of the world's most populous nation, and comes to terms with the legacy of her ancestral homeland."--Back cover
