Synopsis:
When Anchee Min left China in 1984 her knowledge of English was minimal. She tried to write this autobiography in her own tongue, but found it impossible. Only with the emotional freedom granted by a new language could she find her means of expression. This powerful and candid memoir immortalises her coming of age in the Red Guard, the harbouring of illicit love amidst a regime bent on human alienation and her recruitment from rural hard labour into Madame Mao's burgeoning movie industry.

Review:
Anchee Min recounts her suppressed life growing up in Shanghai during the late fifties and sixties. Deprived of any childhood, or personal choices. Min suffered almost always in silence, yet never lost the inner spirit to seek expressive freedom. Nancy Kwan does an excellent job narrating Min's sensitive accounts of her experiences, thoughts and disappointments. She reenacts Min's personal ordeals with appropriate defiance and bittersweet expression and also brings out Min's creative side as a poet. B.J.P. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
