Bitter Winds - A Memoir of My Years in China's Gulag Harry Wu 1st Soft Cover Wu, Harry; Wakeman, Carolyn Published by Wiley Illustrated. 290 pp. Condition: Used. Very Good. The book has been read. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Front cover has minor vertical crease.
In April 1960, Chinese Communist authorities arrested Harry Wu. The son of a well-to-do Shanghai banker, he was cast into a prison labor camp. Though never formally charged or tried, he spent the next nineteen years in a hellish netherworld of grinding labor, systematic starvation, and torture. This book is the powerful story of Harry Wu's imprisonment and survival, of extraordinary acts of courage, and of unforgettable heroism. In stunning detail, Wu recalls life in the prison camps - scavenging barren fields for frogs and snakes, and engaging in elaborate 'food imaging' sessions in the barracks at night. Left for dead in nightmarish solitary confinement, Wu fought back from the brink of insanity, fiercely refusing to relinquish his dignity. A deeply moving story of personal triumph, Bitter Winds bears indelible witness to the power of the human spirit.
