Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425180239, Paperback)
This novel, described by the San Francisco Chronicle Book Review as "nothing short of miraculous," is the story of Zebra Wong, a Chinese girl whose pragmatic mind conflicts with her passionate heart; Lion Head, her classmate, whose penchant for romantic intrigue belies his political ambitions, and Katherine, the seductive American with the red lipstick and the wild laugh who teaches them English and other foreign concepts: individualism, sensuality, the Beatles. In Katherine's classroom, repression and rebellion meet head-on-and the consequences are both tragic and liberating.

A sexy American girl's unfortunate stay in China. In Shanghai to teach English, Katherine freely dispenses of her sensuality, her ideas on makeup, individual rights and free love. Her students lap it up and get into trouble while Katherine is deported. By the author of Red Azalea.
