This wonderful book is written as the diary of a one-year-old baby in an American expat household in Shanghai in the early 1920s. The world of old Shanghai, the life of expats in Asia – it is all reflected here through the eyes of the baby. Elsie McCormick, an American resident of Shanghai, nails the feel of the times with humor and insight.
