In the spirit of the classic "Wild Swans" (the autobiographical family history by Chinese writer Jung Chang. HarperCollins / 9780743246989) comes this epic tale spanning three generations and three separate revolutions. Mixing biography and history into a single ambitious story, Yuan-Tsung Chen views China's rebirth in modern times from the perspective of her late husband's family; from Ah Chen, a landless peasant, who fought in the Taiping Rebellion in 1850-64 to his grandson Jack who reported the Marxist Revolution to the outside world. This is an incredible and compelling story spanning one revolutionary century.
