Emily Hahn's memoir of her life in China and Hong Kong recounts the everyday details of what it was like to be a working single woman, an early feminist, and an American living abroad at the start of WWII. To contemporary ears, some of Hahn's thoughts about non-Westerners and their traditions can be jarring. Happily, narrator Nancy Wu delivers this true story in a tone that reflects the historical context of Hahn's reactions to Far Eastern society and the rumors of war. Wu's believable pronunciations and respectful rendition of pidgin English further set the mood, and her performance is spiked with personality, highlighting Hahn's gumption as well as her insecurities.
