Revolution Is Not a Dinner Party

Eight-year-old Ling is a bright sparky character, born to two doctors, who enjoys a happy, privileged life until Comrade Li, Communist party officer, moves into their home. Neighbours disappear, her father is jailed, Ling herself is badly bullied at school for her bourgeois upbringing, food begins to run out and all her books are burned but still Ling refuses to give up hope, sustained by thoughts of her brave father. Readers will be riveted by this honest and insightful child's eye view of the Cultural Revolution in China.
