Product description


She writes with the mix of blunt candor and high drama that distinguishes both her memoirs. It's a prose style inspired by the didactic operas and films of Madame Mao ... She has developed it into an instrument with remarkable range, full of sorrow and humor, sometimes appealingly coarse and sometimes nuanced ... The United States gave Ms. Min the chance to transport the seeds of her extraordinary story across the oceans, and urged them into bloom (International Herald Tribune)

People with nothing left to lose are reckless and thrilling. With no English or money, Min outwits and outworks the Western system, and this book is part underdog thriller as she claws her way to love and success ... This woman brutalised by doublespeak revels in her new-found luxury of honesty. She's fearless on black politics; spoilt, middle-class kids; and spending her last dollars on porn to assuage her loneliness. Her first book shocked Western readers for its depiction of the East, this one will unnerve them for her depiction of the West (The Times)

A truly inspiring story (Laura Cox Irish Examiner)

Book Description

The sequel to Anchee Min's internationally bestselling memoir, Red Azalea, in which she leaves China for America, struggles to find her way, her voice and her love - and succeeds in all
