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

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



Hoping To Improve Her Chinese and broaden her cultural horizons, Rachel DeWoskin went to work for an American PR firm in China.

Before she knew it, she was not just exploring but making Chinese culture--as the sexy, aggressive, fearless Jexi, star of a wildly successful soap opera.

A sort of Chinese counterpart to "Sex in the City" revolving around Chinese-Western culture clashes, the show was called "Foreign Babes in Beijing." Living the clashes in real life while playing out a parallel version onscreen, Rachel forms a group of friends with whom she witnesses the vast changes sweeping through China as the country pursues the new maxim that "to get rich is glorious." In only a few years, billboards, stylish bars and discos, international restaurants, fashion shows, divorce, foreign visitors, and cross-cultural love affairs transform the face of China's capital.

Foreign Babes in Beijing is as astute and informative as it is witty, moving, and entertaining.
