I read this book in March 2004 and 4 years later have no memory of it whatsoever. On that note I suspect I found it shallow and have only kept it because of having a China interest

Lord is a wonderful writer and some of these stories will leave you in tears. One of the best accounts of the Cultural Revolution and of the Chinese soul I have read.
