Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE--------BITTER WINDS: A MEMOIR OF MY YEARS IN CHINA'S GULAG /Harry Wu and Carolyn Wakeman. In this eloquent memoir, Wu recalls his 19 years in Chinese labor camps. Though a middle-class college student, he was initially a patriotic Communist, but he soon ran afoul of the thought police. Hoping to flee the country in 1959, he was denounced as an enemy of the revolution.'' The book, written with Wakeman, co-author of To the Storm: The Odyssey of a Revolutionary Chinese Woman, focuses primarily on Wu's first decade as a prisoner struggling against starvation, seeing others succumb and learning a brutal survival ethic from fellow inmates. It is an intimate story of bravery and tragedy, including details about hallucinations, torture and the loss of comrades. The Cultural Revolution led to Wu's transfer to a mine, where he stayed for 10 years. There, he began to carve out a life, marrying a woman who later betrayed him. Six years after his release in 1979, he left for the U.S., where he is now a resident scholar at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. An epilogue briefly describes Wu's continuing heroism: in 1991, he returned to China and surreptitiously filmed labor camps for the TV program 60 Minutes. PLUS----there are L-O-A-D-S of photos!!
