Some brief overview of book

"For a real insiders look at life in modern China, readers should turn to Rachel DeWoskin."Sophie Beach, The Economist Determined to broaden her cultural horizons and live a "fiery" life, twenty-one-year-old Rachel DeWoskin hops on a plane to Beijing to work for an American PR firm based in the busy capital. Before she knows it, she is not just exploring Chinese culture but also creating it as the sexy, aggressive, fearless Jiexi, the starring femme fatale in a wildly successful Chinese soap opera. Experiencing the cultural clashes in real life while performing a fictional version onscreen, DeWoskin forms a group of friends with whom she witnesses the vast changes sweeping through China as the country pursues the new maxim, "to get rich is glorious." In only a few years, Chinas capital is transformed.

With "considerable cultural and linguistic resources" (The New Yorker), DeWoskin captures Beijing at this pivotal juncture in her "intelligent, funny memoir" (People), and "readers will feel lucky to have sharp-eyed, yet sisterly, DeWoskin sitting in the drivers seat"(Elle).
