    A courageous and intimate memoir of China framed in ten telling words: ‘People’, ‘Leader’, ‘Reading’, ‘Writing’, ‘Revolution’, ‘Grassroots’. Through these and other common vernacular words and phrases, Yu Hua – widely regarded as one of China’s greatest living writers – frames powerful personal stories of the Chinese experience from the Cultural Revolution to the 2010s. With wit, insight and courage, he presents a refreshingly candid vision of the ‘Chinese miracle’ and its consequences, and reveals a unique perspective on the world’s most populous yet misunderstood nation.
