Beijing Doll

    By

    Banned in China for its candid exploration of a young girl's sexual awakening yet widely acclaimed as being 'the first novel of 'tough youth' in China' BEIJING TODAY, BEIJING DOLL drives a daring path through China's rock 'n' roll subculture.This hip, cutting edge novel - drawn from the diaries the author kept throughout her teenage years - takes readers to the streets of Beijing where a disaffected generation spurns tradition for lives of self expression, passion, and music. Chun Sue's explicit sensuality, unflinching attitude towards sex, and raw, lyrical style breaks new ground in contemporary Chinese literature.
