    History remembered

    Andy Zhang's novel about growing up in Communist China at the time of the cultural revolution is a most extraordinary book.I am not much of a book reader, but this one really kept my attention.

    A Story to Love

    Andy Zhang¿s novel is really his own story of growing up in Communist China, a story that can¿t and shouldn¿t be forgotten. From the very first chapter, Zhang boldly carries the reader into the lives of Mama who is soon to give birth, Baba who is accused of being a counterrevolutionary by the government, older brother Biao, and little brothers Ming and Dong. Eventually we are introduced to Baby Hai, sister Meili who was one of the Sent Down Generation, and little Hui, our charming narrator. The story is an achingly honest account of the family¿s trials under the Mao regime including Baby Hai¿s uncertain future, Baba¿s imprisonment and Mama¿s arrest. It is also a personal and touching coming-of-age story during which Zhang reveals small triumphs and great joy hidden in the cruelties of Communism. As Hui grows up and is presented with opportunities and tough choices, we learn that pain and humanity can carry equal weight inside the temptation of revenge. Through Zhang¿s fresh voice and tender characterization, readers will find themselves endeared by Hui¿s vulnerabilities and willingness to bear witness to a complicated time in Chinese history.
