Anchee Min speaks out

10 Jul

Chinese author Anchee Min talks about her rough beginnings, in both China and the US. Min, who went to the US in 1984 and has been there since, wrote a memoir and several historical novels. She’s very frank in the interview about some of the terrible things she did during the Cultural Revolution as a Red Guard, such as betraying her favorite teacher and taking part in exposing a girl’s love affair that ended with her suicide.
