Rachel DeWoskin spent her twenties in China as a consultant, writer, and the unlikely star of a nighttime soap opera called “Foreign Babes in Beijing.” Her memoir of those years, Foreign Babes in Beijing, has been published in six countries and is being developed as a feature film by Paramount Pictures. Her new novel Repeat After Me, is about a young American ESL teacher, a troubled Chinese radical, and their unexpected New York romance. Rachel has a BA in English from Columbia and an MFA in poetry from Boston University. Her first collection of poems, called The Caretaker’s Daughter, is about girls (including her) in the Missouri Ozarks. Rachel lives in NYC and Beijing.
