They were the most famous sisters in China. As the country battled seismic transformations these three women left an indelible mark on history. Big Sister made herself one of the country's richest women. Little Sister became first lady of pre-Communist Nationalist China. Red Sister rose to be Mao's vice-chair. Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister takes us on a sweeping journey from exiles' quarters in Japan and Berlin to secret meeting rooms in Moscow, and from the compounds of the Communist elite in Beijing to the corridors of power in democratic Taiwan. By turns intimate and epic, Jung Chang reveals the lives of three extraordinary women who helped shape twentieth-century China.
