  • "An autobiography in graphic-novel form, A Chinese Life traces a remarkable personal journey through modern history, from the creation of the People's Republic of China in 1949 to the present day. Working in close collaboration with writer Philippe Ôtié, artist Li Kunwu has created a timely and compelling memoir of state and self that is at once epic and intimate, comic and tragic, in scope"--Page 4 of cover.
