"This is the story of three generations of women in a Chinese family and mirrors the tumultuous history of twentieth-century China. Jung Chang's grandmother was born into the feudal China of 1909.

Jung Chang herself became a Red Guard but eventually came to question Mao -- a step which was to have momentous consequences for her and her family."--Container.
