Product Description

The original Foreign Babe in Beijing returns with her “heartbreaking and uplifting” (PW) debut novel, Repeat After Me. Aysha is a twenty-two-year-old New Yorker recovering from her parents’ divorce and a nervous breakdown.

Everything changes when the young Chinese dissident, Da Ge, enrolls in her
English class hot on the heels of the Tiananmen Square massacre.

Improbably and inescapably in love with Da Ge, Aysha ends up pulled in directions she never expected. Richly textured and full of sharp cross-cultural observations, Repeat After Me plunges the reader into a persuasive tale about love, loss, and language.
