Summary
  • "Our Story ... follows [Rao and Meitang Pingru] through the decades, in both poverty and good fortune--looking for work, opening a restaurant, moving cities, mending shoes, raising their children, and being separated for seventeen years by the government when Pingru is sent to a labor camp. As the pair ages, China undergoes extraordinary growth, political turmoil, and cultural change''--Amazon.com
  • Pingru's memoir is a celebration of a marriage that spanned the twentieth century in China. He had known Mao Meitang in childhood; their union lasted almost sixty years. Through the decades they faced both poverty and good fortune, and were separated for seventeen years by the government when Pingru is sent to a labor camp. During their marriage, China underwent extraordinary growth, political turmoil, and cultural change. -- adapted from amazon.com info
