    Fascinating page-turner following the misadventures of Jenevieve Chang, a burlesque performer finding her way in Shanghai.

    Not your usual sprawling family memoir. A very heady snapshot of East devouring the West and vice versa. The images of cultural clash and emotional collisions leaps across the page courtesy of Chang's choreographic and achingly raw voice. To be enjoyed over a minty cocktail with a dash of ginseng!

    Amazing!

    I think I am in the minority here, as I did not like this book as much as other readers. I had trouble identifying with details, authenticy and the story. Her memoir relates mainly to herself, parents, grandparents, and other family members. Most of this information is quite interesting, but I found it frustrating the change of storylines throughout the memoir. Unhappy Chang runs away from Sydney to become a dancer in London; from there to Shanghai to become a Chinatown Doll in burlesque perform [...]

    Jenevieve Chang's autobiographical journey through the dizzying highs and crashing lows of Shanghai's Chinatown Dolls offers a view into her own personal triumphs and struggles finding a sense of home in the new China. Chang takes us behind the stage and facade of Shanghai's glitz and glam into a murky underworld of vice and virtue, treachery and loyalty, and the lives of those finding a place in the new China. This is a deeply personal and engaging story.

    I really wanted to like this more than I did but I found this hard to get into.
