This beautifully written, evocative memoir of a year spent in an industrial politically conservative Chinese city reveals the secret lives of some of the women Checkoway met there. Their stories are incredibly touching, as they are interwoven with the life of the author herself and her own memories of the mother, sisters and grandmother she lost while still a child.
