Beijing Tai Tai: Life, Laughter and Motherhood in China

USD $14.99 Tax Included

A tai tai’ tale… When Tania McCartney discovered she’d be moving her husband, self and two kids under the age of five to China for four years, she was 95 per cent horrified. But what she never expected was to fall in love. Beijing seeped under her skin and grabbed hold of her heart…a love affair that inspired Beijing Tai Tai; a collection of shrewdly observed, heartfelt and humorous insights into Beijing expatriate life.

Intensely personal and at times a little controversial, it’s a rollercoaster ride of honesty and openness as a mother and wife (tai tai) juggles suburban family life in urban Beijing. Presented in a series of column-like snippets — on topics ranging from the consumption of bull testicles to the life-altering experience of walking the Great Wall — it talks of both the challenging lows and intense highs of expat life in a country on the brink of great change.
