really liked it
Read in January, 2009

Ms. Chang created a fascinating portrait of several women (including herself and her family) who "went out" from their birthplaces and from the cultural strictures of those places. For a place that is often in the news as The People's Republic of China is, one seldom seems to glean much of the life of the people within. For most of this book, I felt like a child with my nose pressed to the glass, unable to look away from the lives of the women portrayed within. This is an interesting read that will stay with me.
