About This Item

London, UK Victor Gollancz Ltd. , 1993. Hardcover First Edition UK, so stated. First Edition UK, so stated. Very Near Fine in Fine DJ: Book shows only minute indications of use; shows tiny bump at bottom edge of front board; binding square and secure; text clean. DJ unclipped; mylar-protected. Virtually 'As New'. NOT a Remainder. NOT a Book-Club Edition. NOT an Ex-Library copy. 8vo. 252pp. Hardback with DJ. What it was like growing up in Mao's China, where the soul was secondary to the state, beauty was mistrusted, and love could be punishable by death.

Synopsis

Born into a devoutly Maoist family in 1950s Shanghai and forced to work on a communal farm from the age of seventeen, Anchee Min found herself in an alienating and hostile political climate, where her only friendships were perilous and intense. Both candid and touching, this compelling memoir documents her isolation and illicit love against the backdrop of China's Cultural Revolution. From her coming of age in the Red Guard to her recruitment in Madame Mao's burgeoning industry of propaganda movies, Red Azalea explores the secret sensuality of a repressive society with elegance and honesty.
