About this title

Synopsis:

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.

Product Description:

They were students in Shanghai, brought up to love Mao and to despise emotion, their only passion was communism. Then a new teacher arrived to teach them English vocabulary. With her scarlet lipstick and radical attitudes, Katherine reveals a whole new universe. Does she go too far?
