Zhang Xianliang, one of Chinas greatest living writers, spent twenty-two years in Chinese prisons and labor camps until his rehabilitation in 1979. Through most of those years he kept a diary of his experiences. Because any detail would have meant the diarys destruction and Zhangs execution, the entries were curt and cryptic- sometimes entire days were condensed into two or three words.

This is a frightening portrait of how a major civilization can bring itself to its knees by mass complicity (it would have been absurdly easy to escape from the camp, yet no prisoner ever thought to do so), told with a deft matter-of-factness that only highlights the horror. At the same time, Zhang does not ignore the minor kindnesses and moments of human recognition that dotted his prison years.
