Being new on the staff, I love hearing older programs that are new to me. Preparing for the Mayfair Yang show this week, Krista mentioned a past conversation with author Anchee Min, whose name came up again the next day when we received a copy of her latest book, Pearl of China.

Her interview in “Surviving the Religion of Mao” is a personal view into life growing up in Communist China, and as a devoted member of the Red Guard.
