Details

A spirited memoir by a former Chinese factory worker who grew up in Nanjing, participated in the Tiananmen Square protest and ended up as an international journalist. As a teenager, Zhang worked in a factory producing missiles designed to reach North America, queuing every month to give evidence to the period police that she wasnt pregnant. In the oppressive routine of guarded compound and political meetings, Zhangs disillusionment with The Glorious Cause drove her to study English, which strengthened her intellectual independence from bright, western style clothes to organizing the largest demonstration by Nanjing workers in support of Tiananmen Square Protest in 1989.
