From Rednecks to Red China
"FROM REDNECKS TO RED CHINA" is a collection of anecdotes related to the author's stay in Beijing, in 1986, as a student of Mandarin. She started writing while living in Hong Kong, a few years ago, aware that China was rapidly changing into a very different place. It is a light-hearted account of everyday life with a few pointers on Chinese culture and history, with the hope of providing the reader with a better understanding of cultural differences.

About Anne Depaulis
Anne Depaulis was born and raised in France and, at the age of 17, was an exchange student to the U.S. where she lived with a family for one year in Dallas. It was a life changing experience and, from then on, she travelled extensively. She graduated in English as well as Chinese studies, in the mid 70's, but it wasn't until 1986 that she received a scholarship to go to China for six months. Upon her return to London, she was hired by an investment bank and, eventually, became a specialist of Asian financial markets. Altogether, Anne lived abroad for twenty-six years and describes herself as a global citizen with French characteristics and a British passport. She is now happily retired in Paris where she is rediscovering her own culture.
