AnMoreFrom the acclaimed author of eight volumes of essays and fiction in Chinese, comes Annabel Annuo Lius first book in English—My years as Chang Tsen—a haunting memoir on the most tumultuous time of her life, her childhood in war-torn China. An immigrant and bilingual writer who came to the U.S. in 1957, Liu renders a rare and riveting first-person account of a child caught in two consecutive major wars that killed a total of 22.5 million Chinese, the Sino-Japanese War and the Chinese Civil War.

Born in Shanghai, Liu was 14 when her family fled to Taiwan in the waning days of the Civil War, which ended with the establishment of the Communist People’s Republic of China. The triumphant Mao regime’s policies and actions subsequently caused the deaths of an estimated 77 million. All told, 100 million Chinese—equivalent to one-third of the current U.S. population—were killed during the first 40 years of her life.Against this violent backdrop, the bloodiest chapter of all human history, Liu writes about her precarious early life and her coming of age in the distinct culture of a bygone era.

More than a story of war and one family’s struggle to survive, what comes through the pages is an unflinchingly candid and intimate story of an extraordinary childhood.
