"Brilliant and terrifying...Lord unmasks contemporary China and elucidates the cruel promise of China Spring. The novelist bears witness to China's struggle from an extraordinary perspective...This eloquent book's power to give hope to the Chinese people depends on the steady gaze of Americans and others with the not-so-simple freedom to read its message linked in blood." "A vivid and startling mosaic of the political struggles that foreshadowed the Tiananmen Square uprising." from the back. By the author of Spring Moon, Bette Bao Lord is an expert storyteller....indelible portraits that get at the essence of what it means to be Chinese in our times.
