It's a travelogue, a cultural history, and a memoir of parenting successes and disasters as she and Tony feel as though they're running a "small overnight camp for American boys in Beijing." As their initially reluctant sons gradually make friends, and Susan slowly learns enough Mandarin to negotiate bargaining at the market and trips with visitors to the Great Wall, their lives seem to be reaching an even keel.
