    Paperback Å Wild Ginger Kindle ↠ wild book, ginger book, Wild Ginger PDF/EPUBEvery so often I have to read something about the Cultural Revolution This is largely an effort to understand my wife's background since her early life was defined by that disgraceful patch of history I'd previously read Anchee Min's Katherine which is set in China after the doors opened but which pretty clearly betrayed the author's loathing for certain continuing aspects of Chinese culture This one closely resembles Ying Chang Compestine's autobiographical Revolution Is Not a Dinner Party Essentially it's a fictionalized dramatization from the point of view of vulnerable adolescent girls one of whom does the narration Every day Maple suffers at the hands of bullies at her school who claim that her communist credentials are bogus since her parents were teachers instead of proletarian workers She feels that she must accept the abuse until a new girl arrives This girl Wild Ginger makes an even better target because she's only half Chinese but unlike M

    Paperback Å Wild Ginger Kindle ↠ wild book, ginger book, Wild Ginger PDF/EPUBA long time fan of Anchee Min and her keen insight on the Cultural Revolution this novel rocketed to the top of my favorites quite quickly I could not put it down and resigned to doing things one handed She manages to pack a punch in less words Her descriptions of the oppressive atmosphere the irony of the fractured solidarity of the Mao supporters and how swept up in fear the adolescents are is palpable and able to be touched It hurts to read about Wild Ginger is portrayed in the beginning as a little curbed and broken but her wildness emerges fast Constantly I

    Paperback Å Wild Ginger Kindle ↠ wild book, ginger book, Wild Ginger PDF/EPUBThis book was a good quick read about a teenage girl growing up during Chairman Mao's reign in China Books like these can be hard to read because some parts of history just aren't fair It provided a look into the Maoist years in China in the 60's and 70's which I though was interesting because I don't know much about them While reading this book I came across an article about how Mao had tunnels dug throughout China in case of attack creating an underground city beneath Beijing There were a ton of pictures and it was pretty creepy
