THE MULTIMILLION-COPY INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
A grandmother given as a concubine to a warlord, a mother sent to a detention camp during the Cultural Revolution and a daughter forced to work as a ‘barefoot doctor’ with no training.
Through the story of three generations of women in her own family – the grandmother given to the warlord as a concubine, the Communist mother and the daughter herself – Jung Chang reveals the epic history of China’s twentieth century.
This unflinching personal memoir, both breathtaking in its scope and unforgettable in its descriptions, had an extraordinary impact, opening up China to the world and becoming one of the defining non-fiction titles of the century.
