Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China by Jung Chang is a memoir about the female experience of living in twentieth-century China. Chang’s grandmother, Yu-fang, was forced to be a concubine for a warlord general at a very young age. She gave birth to Chang’s mother, De-hong, who marries an officer in the army and they both begin working for the Communist party where they are persecuted for their affiliations and sent to detention camps. Chang is born in the middle of this political turmoil and earns the chance as a young woman to travel to Britain where she chooses to remain.
