About this product
- DescriptionFrom the author of the international bestseller, Red Azalea, comes the stirring, croucally charged story of the woman kwn as 'the white-boned demon' - the ambitious wife of Chairman Mao whose actions led to the death of millions in the Cultural Revolution. From the young, unwanted daughter of a concubine, defiant in her refusal to have her feet bound, to the wayward, beautiful actress on the stages of Shanghai, to the ruthless, charismatic partner of the great revolutionary leader, Mao Zedong, Anchee Min moves seamlessly from the intimately personal to the broad sweep of world history in this fascinating portrait of an extraordinary woman driven by ambition, betrayal and a desperate need to be loved. Finely nuanced and always ambiguous, Min penetrates the myth surrounding Madame Mao with passion and sensitivity to paint a surprising picture of one of history's most vilified women. Rich with compressed drama and all the lyrical poetry of great opera, Becoming Madame Mao is a startling and moving achievement.
- Author BiographyBorn in Shanghai in 1957, Anchee Min has a personal connection to story of Madame Mao. At seventeen, she was sent to a labour collective, where after a number of years a talent scout recruited her for Madame Mao's Shanghai Film Studio. Min emigrated to the United States in 1984 with help of the actress Joan Chen.
