Howard and Ellen Goodman were just turning 60 when Howard was laid off from his job as a newspaper editor during the Great Recession. Jobless in a dying industry in the U.S., the couple grabbed the chance at a new life when opportunity in Shanghai arose out of the blue.Both a travelogue and a cultural critique, a€œDisorienteda€ tells the couple's story, from dazed arrival in a new land to Howard's experiences as an editor under state-controlled media and Ellen's teaching English to the children of China's new elites. Ultimately, the pair developed a surprise romance with a staggering country that few Americans really know. In this highly readable book, the Goodmans draw the reader into their worlds as they become oriented to life in a place so different from the one they left in the States. What results in their sweet and warm portrayal of life as ex-pats in Shanghai and Hong Kong is a love story, a portrait of transformation, and an appreciation of what they left at home.In this highly readable book, the Goodmans draw the reader into their worlds as they become oriented to life in a place so different from the one they left in the States.
