I have just finished Yuang Chang's book Wild Swans, a massive book and no boring bits at all. It's the true story of three generations of women in China - the grandmother who had her feet bound and lived under the warlords; the mother, who was a high official in the rise of communism, and the author/daghter, who lived under Mao at the height of his madness. Very readable and I learned a lot. Highly recommended.
