Summary
From exchange student to foreign correspondent, this "smart, thrilling memoirist" chronicles 18 years of living through China's turbulent change. In 1983, Scott Savitt is one of the first American exchange students allowed to study in Bejing. For him, it's not just an academic adventure, but the beginning of nearly two decades in China. Immersing himself first among Bejing university students who know every lyric to every Beatles song, Savitt moves from academia to journalism, where he gets a front row seat to some of the country's most controversial and important historical events. Drawing on his experience-first as an Asiaweek Magazine reporter and a Los Angeles Times correspondent then moving to his position with United Press International-Savitt chronicles the cultural upheaval as Bejing's first nightclubs open and its students begin to find their own voices. After experiencing the tumult and eventual bloodshed of Tianamen Square, the journalist starts the first independent English-language newspaper in the country, a move which catapults him straight into the sights of the Chinese government
