Few books have had such an impact as Wild Swans: a popular bestseller which has sold more than 13 million copies and a critically acclaimed history of China; a tragic tale of nightmarish cruelty and an uplifting story of bravery and survival. 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 which is extraordinary in every way.

Recensioner i media

'It is impossible to exaggerate the importance of this book.' Mary Wesley 'Everything about "Wild Swans" is extraordinary. It arouses all the emotions, such as pity and terror, that great tragedy is supposed to evoke, and also a complex mixture of admiration, despair and delight at seeing a luminous intelligence directed at the heart of darkness.' Minette Marrin, Sunday Telegraph 'Immensely moving and unsettling; an unforgettable portrait of the brain-death of a nation.' J. G. Ballard, 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.' Martin Amis, Independent on Sunday 'There has never been a book like this.' Edward Behr, Los Angeles Times
