  • Description

    Blending the intimacy of memoir and the panoramic sweep of eyewitness history, Wild Swans has become a bestselling classic in thirty languages, with more than ten million copies sold. The story of three generations in twentieth-century China, it is an engrossing record of Mao's impact on China, an unusual window on the female experience in the modern world, and an inspiring tale of courage and love.

    Jung Chang describes the life of her grandmother, a warlord's concubine; her mother's struggles as a young idealistic Communist; and her parents' experience as members of the Communist elite and their ordeal during the Cultural Revolution. Chang was a Red Guard briefly at the age of fourteen, then worked as a peasant, a "barefoot doctor," a steelworker, and an electrician. As the story of each generation unfolds, Chang captures in gripping, moving -- and ultimately uplifting -- detail the cycles of violent drama visited on her own family and millions of others caught in the whirlwind of history.

    An engaging book

    Written in a simple language. This book is worth a read. It explains a lot about China and it's history. I never knew much about China before reading this book. It is a must read if anyone is interested in world history.

    The wild swans never loose the human touch even in the worst of situations!!!

    Read to know the untold story of common Chinese people

    Not only a gripping tale of three generations of women, we also get to know a lot about Chinese history and the plight of the common people. It is a non-fiction novel, a memoir and a peep into the common mind.
