In this lively translation of Wang Chen-ho's ribald satire, a Taiwanese village loses all perspective - and common sense - at the prospect of fleecing a shipload of lusty and lonely American soldiers. A rotund, excitable high school English teacher receives word that 300 GIs are coming from Vietnam for a weekend of R & R. He persuades the owners of the Big 4 brothels that they will all take in more U.S. dollars if the pleasure girls can speak a little English; his plan is to train fifty specially selected prostitutes in a Crash Course for Bar Girls. But what begins as a simple plan to teach a few English phrases quickly becomes absurdly elaborate: courses will include an Introduction to American Culture, a crash course on global etiquette, and a workshop in personal hygiene taught by Dr. Venereal Wang.
