Jung Chang
Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister

Jung Chang’s Wild Swans, a group biography of Chang’s mother and grandmother, and of herself, sold 13 million copies, despite being banned in her native China. Now she returns with Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister which tells the stories of three very different and extraordinary women. The Soong sisters sat at the heart of power in China through a hundred years of wars, revolutions and seismic transformations, and helped shape the country’s history. A gripping story of love, war, exile, intrigue, glamour and betrayal, told with Chang’s unique blend of the intimate and the epic.
