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." Source: 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." Source: The New Yorker

"A mesmerizing memoir." Source: 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
