1000 Years of Joys and Sorrows: A Memoir by Weiwei Ai

I don't know that much about China's history, so I appreciate the way Ai tries to paint a more complete picture and shows wider context for the personal events in the book.

I'm not sure what caused it, but I felt that the part about his father was much more humane and intimate; compared to it, the part where he talked about himself seemed much colder, detached.
