Read by Anna Massey. Approximately 6 1/4 hours listening on 6 CDs. Abridged.

Combining the intimacy of memoir with the epic sweep of a great novel, Wild Swans tells the story of the three women - Jung Chang, her mother and her grandmother - whose fortunes mirror the tumultuous history of twentieth-century China. As the years pass in this beautifully detailed family tapestry, we see three lives unfolding one from the other, through love, tragedy and renewal.

The story takes us further inside China than we have ever been; from palaces to prison cells, from grand public scenes of insurrection and turmoil to quiet chambers where confidences of women are passed from mother to daughter. Breathtaking in its scope, unforgettable in its descriptions of China's long nightmare, it is both an important work of contemporary history and an extraordinary testimony to the human spirit.
