The eagerly-awaited new book by Denise Chong, author of the award-winning, national bestseller, The Concubine・s Children.

In her first book in a decade, beloved author Denise Chong, tells the story of a man who humiliated a repressive regime in front of the entire world, and whose daring gesture informs our view of human rights to this day.

Despite his family・s impeccable Communist roots, Lu Decheng, a small town bus mechanic, grew up intuiting all that was wrong with Mao・s China. As a young man he believes truth and decency mattered, only to learn that preserving the Chairman・s legacy mattered more.

Lu・s story reads like Shakespearean drama, peppered with defiance, love and betrayal. His steadfast refusal to acquiesce comes to a head, but not an end, with his infamous defacing of Mao・s portrait during the 1989 protests in Tiananmen Square.

An excellent chronicle of three extremely brave souls who defied and continue to defy the utterly flawed (Anything But)People's Republic. An entire race of 1.3b that has been conditioned and beaten to submission. \的魚竣ゅ
