Ying Ruocheng's lively narrative takes us from his prison cell during the Cultural Revolution back to the princely palace of his childhood. In vivid detail, he describes his unconventional education during China's revolution, which ultimately led to his theatrical work in the era of reform, ranging from a partnership with Arthur Miller on Death of a Salesman to roles in the films The Last Emperor and Little Buddha. The memoir of this internationally renowned actor, director, translator, and high-ranking government official during events in Tiananmen Square in 1989 provides a rare glimpse behind the scenes of contemporary Chinese culture and politics."--BOOK JACKET." ;
