About this title
The extraordinary life of the Manchu author, feminist and figure of controversy, who yearned to expose the true humanity of the elderly empress dowager feared and hated by the rest of the world, but never quite shared the truth of herself.From the Back Cover:
"Imperial Masquerade is an ingenious rethinking of the available evidence, and presents an absorbing account of how Der Ling survived at Court, and what it must have been like to work for such a formidable ruler." -- Jonathan Spence, author of The Search for Modern China and Return to Dragon Mountain
"An intriguing, insightful portrait of a woman born at the boundary between two cultures who, in her restless yearning for celebrity, crossed and re-crossed another boundary -- that between reality and fantasy -- in an extraordinary life that took her from the Forbidden City of Beijing to the pleasure palaces of America's Jazz Age." -- Diana Preston, author of The Boxer Rebellion
