Synopsis:
From the best-selling author of RED AZALEA, this extraordinary novel tells the stirring, erotically charged story of Madame Mao Zedong, the woman almost universally known as the 'white-boned demon,' whom many hold directly responsible for the excesses of the Cultural Revolution. Bringing her lush psychological insight to bear on the facts of history, Min penetrates the myth surrounding this woman and provides a "convincing, nuanced portrait of a damaged personality" (Entertainment Weekly) driven by ambition, betrayal, and a never-to-be-fulfilled need to be loved. With all the compressed drama and high lyrical poetry of great opera, BECOMING MADAME MAO is a "remarkable accomplishment . . . Madame Mao is finally given her own voice" (Ha Jin).

Review:
"Capable and accomplished though Min is, she never truly captures Jiang Ching's character....A remarkable act of historical imagination, but readers are left with more questions than answers."

Kirkus, 04/15/2000

Review:
"[T]he portrait of Jiang that emerges is satisfyingly complex [but] the novel is in most other ways a disappointment. Min's kaleidoscopic narrative method--alternating between subjective first-person and more objective third-person sections--may help to deepen the psychological portrait of Madame Mao, but it makes for a choppy and remote reading experience. The prose, moreover, is almost always just a little off, resembling an awkward and unidiomatic translation."

Gary Krist, Salon, 06/01/2000
