Life and Death in Shanghai by Nien Cheng

Life and Death in ShanghaiLife and Death in Shanghai by Nien Cheng is an autobiography about the author’s experiences during China’s Cultural Revolution. Before I read this book, I knew next to nothing about the Cultural Revolution. She not only makes it personal, but she includes some of the other history and the politics, so you really learn something from your read. The author is amazingly brave but at the same time, very human and relatable.
