"A visionary account of life in the People’s Republic of China”
Already a modern classic, this remarkable book traces a personal journey through modern history, from the creation of the People’s Republic of China in 1949 to the present day. Li Kunwu has created a timely and compelling memoir of state and self that is at once epic and intimate, comic and tragic, in scope.
"Yes, this book is a memoir. Yes, it is one man's life. But A Chinese Life is an enormous story - as big as China itself”
