Abstract:

"Banned in China for its candid exploration of a young girl's sexual awakening, Beijing Doll cuts a daring path through China's rock-and-roll subculture. This headline-making autobiographical novel takes readers to the streets of Beijing where a disaffected generation spurns tradition for lives of self-expression, passion, and rock-and-roll. Chun Sue's explicit sensuality, unflinching attitude toward sex, and raw, lyrical style break new ground in contemporary Chinese literature."--Jacket.
