About this title:

Synopsis: In this remarkable fictionalised memoir, Lulu Wang tells the story of a teenage girl, Lian, during the Cultural Revolution. Separated from her lower-caste friend, Kim, when she joins her mother in a reeducation camp, Lian finds solace there with some of China's leading scholars, who teach her to distinguish truth from propaganda. But on her return home, Lian struggles to keep her integrity as the rigid traditional caste-system undermines her friendship with Kim and as the country is swept by a fresh wave of terror and chaos. An immense success on its publication in the Netherlands, this is a beautifully written account of an intellectual, emotional and sexual awakening in extraordinary circumstances.

Review: One of the most wonderful books that I have read for years .. written in a beautiful, restrained but powerful style (NRC Handelsblad)

'A quirky and appealing narrative that quickly and strongly forges a bond between the reader and Lian, the girl whose story it tells through her own voice...the book combines an often charming and touching story with a searing critique of the Cultural Revolution, and the anomalies and contradictions that accompanied it...Wang has not simply created a dry polemic, but has tapped her well of anger to craft a lively and involving tale with a passionate, flowing three-part narrative

A successful combination of personal experience, painfully gained maturity and writing talent ... Wang's strength is her fresh and sensitive style, her sharp observation and the mix of experience and fictive plot (Aachener Zeitung)
