Praise

“A vivid, at times intimate, portrait of a changing China.”
The Christian Science Monitor, “10 Best Books of May”


“Pingru’s intimate, illustrated memoir of a life shared with his wife, Meitang, offers a touching portrait of marriage. The story is driven by rich memories of everyday life. . .paired with Pingru’s expressive ink drawings. . . . Our Story makes a compelling case for love’s power.”
Booklist

“Using spare prose and stunning, full-color illustrations, Pingru reveals his struggles, joys, and enduring love for his wife over the course of their lives in a dramatically changing China. . . . Pingru’s exquisite, visually dazzling memoir reveals an ordinary life lived in extraordinary times.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Pingru, [at age] 95, makes his literary debut with a charming memoir illustrated with his own evocative watercolors . . . . A graceful, gently told narrative of contentment and resilience.”
