I am in the middle of reading Bend, Not Break: A Life in Two Worlds by Ping Fu with MeiMei Fox, a 2013 book I discovered at the library. It is a dramatic and moving memoir about a child torn from a loving home and surviving the Cultural Revolution in China, later seeking asylum in America, putting herself through college, settling into her new country, and becoming a successful entrepreneur. It's an eye opener into that period of upheaval in China and the struggles of a new immigrant.
Access: Thirteen Tales by Xu Xi, a collection of short stories about women in Hong Kong, published in 2011.
