Paula and Andrew, two twenty-something Americans, arrive in China right after the Cultural Revolution, when the country is just starting to open up to foreigners. Paula has come to teach English and Andrew has come to spend a semester close to Paula. Their naivete is astounding as they blunder into the heavily socialist and guarded community of the school. They are spied on by everyone, obliquely threatened, mystified by local customs, and general fish out of water. Ultimately, Andrew returns to the States, but Paula decides to stay, despite her seeming distaste for their surroundings.
" No Foreigners Beyond This Point ...makes the most of its possibilities both as a romantic exploit and as a perceptive vision of people who are as reluctant to express their true feelings, even as they are curious about those who do." - CurtainUp Review "
