I just finished reading the book “Rött Land, Röd Jord” by Ming Wang-Sonnerup. The English title of the book is “Red Land, Red Soil” (although I am not sure if the English translation of the book is out yet? I cannot find it on a lot of book sites?)
The book was published in 2008 by publisher Bra böcker förlag in Sweden, and is a biography of Ming's own and her family's experiences since the Communists took over the central power in mainland China. I’m one of those who struggled my way through “Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China” by Jung Chang, and I found Wang-Sonnerup’s book to be much better.
Anyways, I doubt this book will ever be available in China, but for those of you not living here it might be an interesting read. If it eventually gets translated that is (just checked Amazon and they don’t have it). Until then it will be a privilege for Swedish speakers only.
