One Bright Moon description

Andrew Kwong’s quietly gripping memoir takes us deep into Maoist China and the stark human cost of the Great Leap Forward. With parents from the intellectual class, Andrew’s innocence, optimism and love of the Communist Party is undercut by the persecution his family suffers under Mao’s regime. One Bright Moon is a powerful account of resilience, family and starting anew, as, after years of struggle, Andrew makes a daring escape to ultimately become a doctor in Australia, from where he works to reunite his family.
