Book Trailer Thursday: Beijing Bastard: Into the Wilds of a Changing China

“In the late 90s, I moved to Beijing,” begins Val Wang’s narration of the trailer for Beijing Bastard: Into the Wilds of a Changing China (Gotham). Wang goes on to share images, video, thoughts, and the secret artistic wishes that framed her experience there, throwing in some sweet mom-versations for good measure. Reviewer Kristine Huntley writes, “Filled with glimpses into the lives of Beijing’s residents, Wang’s lively and accessible memoir offers a fascinating look at the populous, bustling Chinese city before the 2008 Olympics kick-started its transformation.” Today, you get your BTT with a side of armchair (or desk-chair, as the case may be) travel–enjoy!
