Few books have had such an impact as Wild Swans: a popular best seller and a critically acclaimed history of China that opened up the country to the world.
Through the story of three generations of women in her own family - the grandmother given to the warlord as a concubine, the Communist mother, and the daughter herself - Jung Chang reveals the epic history of China's twentieth century.
Breathtaking in its scope, unforgettable in its descriptions, this is a masterpiece that is extraordinary in every way.
"Immensely moving and unsettling; an unforgettable portrait of the brain-death of a nation." (The Sunday Times)
"Wild Swans made me feel like a five-year-old. This is a family memoir that has the breadth of the most enduring social history." (The Independent on Sunday)

Fantastic read. Reads like fiction but is not.
