Ghostwritten: Chairman Mao’s Little Red lie?


A literary scandal is brewing in China where millions of Communist readers are shocked at rumours claiming Chairman Mao’s Little Red Book was, in fact, ghostwritten. First we had James Frey and that Oprah debacle, then we were told Three Cups of Tea was actually One Cup of Tea and a lot of exaggeration, and now this. Non-fiction is just going to the dogs.

(PS – I love the idea of a book being called ‘Little Red’ when it was actually ‘Massively Read’.)
