Summary

Emily Wu's account of her childhood under Mao opens on her third birthday, as she meets her father for the first time in a concentration camp. A well-known academic, her father had been designated an ''ultra-rightist'' and class enemy. As a result, Wu's family would be torn apart and subjected to unending humiliation and abuse. Wu recounts this hidden holocaust in which millions of children and their families died. ''Feather in the Storm'' is an unforgettable story of the courage of one child in a quicksand world of endless terror.
