A Chinese Life

A Chinese Life - Philippe Otie, Li Kunwu Wow, what an incredible journey Li & Otie take us on in this sweeping graphic novel that covers a life in China from 1950 through 2010. The sweep of the changes set in motion by Chairman Mao, and what happened after, are engrossing. I have a better feel now for what it was like, a tiny window into a monumental place. So much change and at the same time, so much acceptance, so much forgetting. Absolutely fascinating and highly recommended.
