The publication of Wild Swans in 1991 was a worldwide phenomenon. Not only did it become the best-selling non-fiction book in British publishing history, with sales of well over two million, yet it was received with unanimous critical acclaim.

Few books have ever had such an impact on their readers. Through the story of three generations of women - grandmother, mother and daughter – ‘Wild Swans’ tells nothing less than the whole tumultuous history of China’s tragic twentieth century, from sword-bearing warlords to Chairman Mao, from the Manchu Empire to Cultural Revolution. At times terrifying, at times astonishing, always deeply moving, Wild Swans is a book in a million, a true story with all the passion and grandeur of a great novel.

For this new edition, Jung Chang has written a new introduction, bringing her own story up to date, and describing the affect Wild Swans’ success has had on her life.

Review:

'Immensely moving and unsettling; an unforgettable portrait of the brain-death of a nation.' (The Sunday Times)

'Wild Swans made me feel like a five-year-old. This is a family memoir that has the breadth of the most enduring social history.' (The Independent on Sunday)

'There has never been a book like this.' (Los Angeles Times)

'Everything about Wild Swans is extraordinary. It arouses all the emotions, such as pity and terror, that great tragedy is supposed to evoke, and also a complex mixture of admiration, despair and delight at seeing a luminous intelligence directed at the heart of darkness.' (The Sunday Telegraph)

Book Description:

Wild Swans is a tragic tale of nightmarish cruelty and an uplifting story of bravery and survival.
