Her first book, Red China Blues: My Long March from Mao to Now, was named one of Time magazine's top ten books in 1996 and remains banned in China. It has been translated into Swedish, Finnish, Dutch and Japanese and optioned for a feature a film. She returned to China in 1999 to make a documentary and to research her second book, Jan Wong's China: Reports from a Not-So-Foreign Correspondent. It is a story about China's headlong rush to capitalism and offers fresh insight into a country that is forever changing. Her most recent book, Beijing Confidential, was released in 2009.
