    Let me know when she will come to China next year, I was about to say this year, just thinking of today is December 6th already, so I may have missed the chance to meet her in person. but it will always be cool, if I can meet her in Beijing here next year since I am one of her readers. its time to say thank her for the book she mailed to me couple years ago. =)

    wish yall are doing well.

    I did enjoy “Foreign Babes In Being” a lot. But that senseless death always got stuck in my mind. Was it necessary? Why do human beings (re) act/ behave the way they do? And I thought that was enough. I have not got to read DeWoskin’s other books. I think they must be great too. For the time being, though, and maybe for a long time, don’t think I want to.

    Or maybe I will try to read one of the others. Not sure yet.

    I loved the interview. I wasn’t familiar before with Rachel DeWoskin or Foreign Babes in Beijing. I’ll be looking for Second Circus when it comes out. The history of the Jewish presence in China has long interested me.

    Gee, I must be the only one who didn’t like Repeat After Me. I read the book few years back and found it a very frustrating read because of a very frustrating heroine.

    @Sveta, Repeat After Me that frustrating? Well, maybe I will give it a miss.
