Inhaltsangabe: Book by Zi-Ping Luo titled "A Generation Lost"
From Library Journal:
China during the Cultural Revolution was a place of almost unimaginable cruelty, especially for intellectuals. The child of intellectuals whom the Communists had branded as enemies, Luo Zi-Ping grew up during China's time of troubles in the late 1960s and 1970s. Her memoir of this period, written in the form of letters to a fellow Chinese professor, reveals her as a woman of uncommon courage and remarkable strength of character. While caring for her invalid father and toiling in a workshop, she managed to teach herself several foreign languages as well as the natural sciences. When things improved, she went to Princeton for graduate study and now teaches at Cal Tech. This reflective and, at times, even lyrical memoir reminds readers that family devotion and human decency can triumph even over barbarism.
