Confessions of a Red Guard: A Memoir
Author: Xiaosheng, Liang; Translator: Goldblatt, Howard;
Unlike other accounts of the Cultural Revolution, novelist Liang Xiaosheng’s Confessions of a Red Guard relates minor, intensely personal incidents affecting ordinary people during this extraordinary historical period. In the author’s odyssey as a young Red Guard, he is witness to public humiliations of “counterrevolutionaries,” real and imagined; a sex murder and the culprit’s execution; a budding romance in a most unlikely place; stolen pleasures with forbidden books; the ecstasies and personal sacrifices surrounding a glimpse of Chairman Mao at Tiananmen Square; and a host of small ironies of life during a revolutionary movement.
