Dear Librarians,

In the 50 years since the Chinese Cultural Revolution few personal accounts have been published. I was a young teen in May of 1966, newly arrived in Beijing, the epicenter of the revolution. This historical memoir, RED FIRE, offers the first intimate account from someone who lived through these events and survived. It tells a riveting story: how rebels attacked my family, upended my education, and sent me out into a country changed by violence and radical ideology.

" unforgettable historical testimony...a literary gift to help recover a lost but living world." Jasmin Darznik, author of The Good Daughter, a New York Times Bestseller
