About this product
- DescriptionRed Sorrow ...reminds us that it is people who make history. --Atlanta Journal-Constitution At the outbreak of the Cultural Revolution, thirteen-year-old Nanchu watched as Red Guards burst into her home and arrested her parents, who were tortured and jailed. Made an outcast, left to care for herself and her younger brother, she witnessed her native Shanghai fall prey to Mao's red cyclone. She was eventually sent to a military-labor camp on the Si-Soviet Border, where one million of her generation were relocated, and there suffered privation, unspeakable hardship, and abuse by party officials. Not until schools reopened was Nanchu able to escape the camp for a university, but there she discovered that the revolution in the classroom had t ended. In this unforgettable memoir, Nanchu delivers a gut-wrenching portrayal t only of her own family's travails but of a society thrown into upheaval by the struggle for power at the highest levels of the state, scarring an entire generation. Red Sorrow is essential reading for anyone interested in China and the struggle for freedom and human dignity.
- Author BiographyNanchu won a graduate scholarship to study in the United States and has lived here with her family since 1986. She resides in the Boston area.
