Pub Date: 2000 08 Pages: 336 in Publisher: ArrowChildrens The story of a Chinese village boy and his escape from poverty and ignorance. Colours of the Mountain is a moving fascinating and inspiring tale of Da Chen was born in 1962 in. a town over 50 hours' train journey from Beijing. Persecuted because of his family's landlord status. he tries to keep his head down at school and instead of studying spends time with a band of good-time thugs. while his older siblings work the land . Chen draws a wonderful picture of these rough times. of boyhood friendships. the beauty of the Chinese countryside and the madness of the cultural revolution. Following the death of Mao. a meritocracy is again introduced and Da decides he will escape the village of Yellow Mountain. where there is no electricity and no future. He begins. with his other. who has been working the land sinc..., Chinese-born Da Chen is a graduate from Columbia University's School of Law and now lives in New York. This unremarkable fact conceals an indictment of contemporary Chinese society and its repressive censorship of free speech. China is haemorrhaging talented young people, and the recent spate of memoirs by thirtysomething Chinese emigrants describing their childhood years testifies to this sad state of affairs. But this memoir is different in that it is profoundly uplifting, and Da's joyful sense of optimism provides its impetus. Da was born into a neglected farming community in southern China where his family were seen as pariahs. According to the crippling dicates of "political mumbojumbo" Da's siblings were denied a secondary education because his parents were deemed to have had too many children. But despite bullying teachers Da achieved his modest goal. The reader, entranced by his warm personality, cheers him through his arduous revision as he studies by oil-lamp and the gut- wrenching tension of his final exams. It must be remembered that while Western youths were cavorting in discos Da's barefoot older brother was ploughing the family's fields. This is a simple and moving tale for dedicated Sinophiles keen for a vivid portrayal of recent history as lived in a rural community. --Lilian Pizzichini, 268041, Political, 268043, Britain, 759044, United States, 759012, Countries & Regions, 496620, Political Leaders & Leadership, 759196, Terrorism & Freedom Fighters, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 275899, Revolutions & Coups, 771718, World History, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 271267, China, 271248, Asia, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 275903, Communism & Marxism, 275901, Political Science & Ideology, 275870, Government & Politics, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books

Details of the book
Colours of the Mountain

A unique modern memoir of growing up in rural China - a story of friendship, prejudice, families and academic striving, and of one man's fight to escape poverty, hunger and ignorance. "A remarkable coming-of-age memoir filled with humiliation, revenge, vindication and, ultimately, pride." Lisa See.
