When Chun Yu was born inside a modest city in China, she was born into a nation in revolution. The streets were filled with roaming Red Guards, the walls had been covered with slogans, and reeducation meetings were held in all workplaces. Every family faced danger and humiliation, even the youngest young children.
Shortly after Chun's birth, her beloved father was sent to a peasant village inside the countryside to turn into reeducated in the approaches of Chairman Mao. Chun and her brother stayed behind with their mother, who taught in a country middle school where Mao's Little Red Book was a portion of each and every single child's education. Chun Yu's young life was witness to a nation in turmoil, struggle, and revolution -- the only life she knew.
