Thoroughly enjoyed this book as it opened my eyes to what really happened in China during the tale end of the Communist Revolution. For example, a sit-in at Tiananmen Square where students were fasting to protest the government were not exactly fasting but their efforts are, nevertheless, brave. The true opinions of people too afraid to comment publicly.
A taste of modern Chinese history and culture.
Jan Wong is incredibly interesting, brave, naive, kind, cruel, and brilliant. An honestly written piece of literature.
A very interesting insight on Communist China from early 70's to the Tiananmen Square protests. The author recalls her experiences in a way the average Canadian can relate. She tells it as it happened, even when her actions may be embarrassing, foolish or immature in hindsight.
