Wrapping it up13 April 2013
- Published on Amazon.com
This is the last of several books, the long autobiography of Han Suyin. Her perspective of China in the 20th century is just what I've been looking for. I thought I was well versed in world events, but I have been totally ignorant of China until I started reading the works of Han Suyin. I recommend starting at the beginning, with The Crippled Tree, and ploughing right on through to Wind in My Sleeve, which is several books later. This, along with a reading of the 4 great classics (Water Margin, 3 Kingdoms, Journey West and Dream of Red Mansions) is what I consider the basics of my education on China and it's history and culture.
