Book Summary

Chronicling the history of modern China through a controversial lens, a novel from a winner of the Noble Prize in Literature tells the story of Gugu, a revered midwife, who, to prove her allegiance to the Communist party, strictly enforces the one-child policy, performing abortions on women as many as eight months pregnant. By the author of Red Sorghum.
