Overview

Jan Wong's China: Reports from a Not-So-Foreign Correspondent by Jan Wong

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.

About the Author

Over the past three years in her tremendously successful "Lunch With" columns, Jan Wong has been able to combine two things she loves: good food and a good story. An award-winning journalist, she's always willing to ask the questions no one else would ask to get at the story that her subjects don't want told. 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.
