Red China Blues is written by Jan Wong a Canadian writer. During the peak of Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution in China, Ms. Wong left Canada as a young woman, in pursuit of what she believed to be a worthy revolution.
Ms. Wong writes about her journey through an idealistic fog, told in a candid and directly honest account, of her years as a Maoist revolutionary in China.
She recounts things that she believed, spoke and did. It is incredibly hard to accept her past and although certainly unapologetic in nature, the biography resonates a cleansing and self accepting woman.
