summary Undress Me in the Temple of Heaven 108 Ancakes and pizza just like their mama makeArmed only with Nietzsche's greatest works and a copy of Linda Goodman's Love Signs Susie and Chloe were utterly unprepared for their expedition and their experience alternated between culture shock and exotic adventure until a near tragedy turned the trip into a true life international thriller Recounted in Susan Jane Gilman's inspired and unmistakable voice this adventure is an unforgettable voyage into a peculiarly modern heart of darkne. I picked this up from the free book pile at my job The cover and title led me to believe that I was letting myself in for a self indulgent remembrance of the author s various sexual escapades while backpacking around the world But I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was nothing of the sort but a rather chilling and compelling tale It was a uick read and definitely a page turner in the second half

summary Undress Me in the Temple of Heaven 108 In 1986 Susie and her friend Chloe fresh faced graduates from Brown University were inspired by a placemat entitled Pancakes of Many Nations to depart on an epic trip around the world starting with Hong Kong and the People's Republic of China then only recently opened to the rest of the world As the two ventured into what turned out to be a strange and alien land they encountered places far different from anything they had ever experienced from the horrors of an open ditch toilet in. Early in Susan Jane Gilman s memoir of her ill fated 1986 trip to China standing in a filthy Shanghai toilet Gilman declares to her traveling companion We are two young brilliant Ivy League graduates If we can t use a public bathroom in the People s Republic of China who the hell can Sadly this episode is all too typical of Gilman s experiences in ChinaTo be fair Gilman recounts her story through the eyes of herself as a young naive college graduate But I ve certainly met perceptive and sympathetic twenty year olds I groaned at the younger Gilman s cultural observations of life in China the limits of her worldview defined apparently by the boundaries of New York City all this from an aspiring young writer and an honors graduate of Brown University And Gilman is positively eager to discuss her education and ascension from an upbringing she unselfconsciously describes as underprivileged I picked up this book after reading some positive reviews there s a glowing blurb from Alexandra Fuller on the back cover but I can only assume that the reviewers were reading an entirely different book In the introduction Gilman attests to the authenticity of her story but what follows is an endless series of thin clich d characterizations and petty melodramas saccharine denouements And thoughtfully Gilman provides all of her non American characters with ridiculous accents Germans include yah in every sentence Australians oi and the Chinese never seem to get those R s or L s rightGilman wrote this book over twenty years after the events it portrays but is this really the best she could come up with Is it possible to travel 8000 miles around the world and experience nothing much uniue or authentic than could be had from an armchair perusal of Lonely Planet s guide to China What a shame
