About this Event

Join us for a rare opportunity to hear the extraordinary author of Wild Swans in conversation as we celebrate her epic new book, Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister.

Jung Chang’s books have been translated into more than 40 languages and sold over 15 million copies worldwide. Born in 1952, she was a student during the Cultural Revolution, and in its aftermath worked as a barefoot doctor, a steelworker and electrician. In 1978 she moved to London, and became the first person from the People’s Republic of China to be awarded a PhD from a British university. Her books remain banned in Mainland China.

Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister reveals the lives of three women who helped shape twentieth-century China. A gripping story of sisterhood, revolution and betrayal, it takes us from the compounds of the Communist elite in Beijing to exiles’ quarters in Berlin and secret meeting rooms in Moscow. Power and passion, heartbreak and a hundred years of seismic history are all woven together in this unforgettable group biography by one of our greatest living writers.

‘Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister is another triumph’ William Moore, Evening Standard

‘A remarkable story of war, communism and espionage related with nuanced sympathy’ Guardian
