9789888083008: The Empress and Mrs. Conger: The Uncommon Friendship of Two Women and Two Worlds

In winter 1902, in the ruins of post-Boxer Uprising Beijing, two women from two different worlds joined hands in friendship -- the former concubine and legendary tyrant Empress Dowager Cixi, and the Midwest-born, devoutly Christian diplomat's wife Sarah Pike Conger. Together, they made history.

About the Author:

Grant Hayter-Menzies's first book for Hong Kong University Press was Imperial Masquerade: The Legend of Princess Der Ling. He is also the biographer of stage and screen stars Charlotte Greenwood and Billie Burke. He lives in Sidney, British Columbia, where he is working on a book about Pauline Benton, the American-born Chinese shadow theater master.

Review:

Hayter-Menzies takes advantage of his literary talent and cultural sensibility, telling a story about the friendship of two extraordinary women and their experience in a changing world.

(Shuo Wang, California State University Stanislaus)
