Praise

Feather in the Storm represents a magnificent accomplishment. Here is the truly timely tale of a world in revolutionary chaos as suffered and seen by an innocent and powerless child. Emily Wu’s memoir is a story for all times–heart-wrenching, chilling, inspiring and above all unforgettable.” —Anchee Min, author of Red Azalea“With passion, candor, and restraint, Feather in the Storm tells a young girl’s story of growing up in a violent, revolution-battered China. . . . This rich, unique, heartbreaking narrative is about human cruelty, foolishness and decency, and is ultimately a testimony to indomitable human tenacity and vitality.” —Ha Jin, author of Waiting, winner of the National Book Award“Wu rises from the ashes of death and destruction to give voice to the lost and tortured innocent souls of her haunting childhood.” —San Francisco Chronicle“A starkly vivid memoir. . . . Throughout this compelling work, her voice is quiet and steady, underscoring the violent capriciousness of Wu’s childhood under Mao. By the end, we’re more than readers; we’ve become her witnesses.” —Newsweek
