Editorial Reviews

Review

"Wild Swans is riveting. It's blindingly good: a mad adventure story, a fairy tale of courage, and a tale of atrocities. You can't, as they say, put it down.", Newsday

"Her family chronicle resembles a popular novel that stars strong, beautiful women and provides cameo roles for famous men....But Wild Swans is no romance. It's a story...about the survival of a Chinese family through a century of disaster.", The New Yorker

"A mesmerizing memoir.", Time

"An inspiring tale of women who survived every kind of hardship, deprivation and political upheaval with their humanity intact." --Hillary Clinton, O, The Oprah Magazine

"An inspiring tale of women who survived every kind of hardship, deprivation and political upheaval with their humanity intact." , Hillary Clinton, O, The Oprah Magazine
