Biography & Memoir • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

After his wife accepts a three-year work assignment in Beijing as China bureau chief for the WALL STREET JOURNAL, American music journalist Alan Paul and his family begin their expat life. In an unlikely turn of events, Paul forms a blues band called Woodie Alan with a Chinese partner. The band begins touring, ultimately gaining the title of "Best Band in Beijing" and releasing a CD. Paul narrates his memoir in a laid-back tone, with a sense of curiosity and wonder at both the challenges and pleasures of living in a foreign culture and achieving fame in the music world. The audio recording also features samples of music from Woodie Alan. S.E.G. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2011]
