 Shanghai Baby

Shanghai Baby Wei Hui

Dark, edgy, deliciously naughty, an intoxicating cocktail of sex and the search for love. Set in the centuries-old port city of Shanghai, the novel follows the days, and nights, of the irrepressible Coco, who waits tables in a cafe when she meets her first lover, a sensitive artist. But, helpless to stop her gentle lover's descent into addiction, Coco becomes attracted to a Westerner, a rich German businessman with a penchant for seduction. With an entourage of friends ranging from a streetwise madame to a rebellious filmmaker, Coco's forays into in the territory of love and lust cross the borders between two cultures -- awakening her guilt and fears of discovery, yet stimulating her emerging sexual self.

 

"Banned in it's native China, Shanghai Baby has been infamous for raising eyebrows since it's first printing in 1999 and it is not too hard to see why. But there is more to this story than meets the eye. Shanghai Baby is an interesting character study of a young woman discovering herself in contemporary China."
