Hidden among Beijing’s northern mountain range, a gated replica of the Wyoming town of Jackson Hole promises to deliver the American dream to its several thousand Chinese residents. In AMERICAVILLE, Annie Liu escapes China’s increasingly uninhabitable capital city to pursue happiness, freedom, romance, and spiritual fulfillment in Jackson Hole, only to find her dream of living an American life in China to be fraught with complications.
