Description

"What a romp....Alan Paul walked the walk, preaching the blues in China. Anyone who doubts that music is bigger than words needs to read this great tale." --Gregg Allman "An absolute love story. In his embrace of family, friends, music and the new culture he's discovering, Alan Paul leaves us contemplating the love in our own lives, and rethinking the concept of home." --Jeffrey Zaslow, coauthor, with Randy Pausch, of The Last Lecture Alan Paul, award-winning author of the Wall Street Journal's online column "The Expat Life," gives his engaging, inspiring, and unforgettable memoir of blues and new beginnings in Beijing. Paul's three-and-a-half-year journey reinventing himself as an American expat--while raising a family and starting the revolutionary blues band Woodie Alan, voted Beijing Band of the Year in the 2008--is a must-read adventure for anyone who has lived abroad, and for everyone who dreams of rewriting the story of their own future.
