A good mix of being a narrative of life in China from near the end of the Cultural Revolution on forward with political and social insights, along with a very personal family tale of life with an aging grandmother focused around her determination to be buried in her home town in a China that does not allow burials. An insightful and wonderful mix of personal and social.
