Good Women of China: Hidden Voices is a collection of female voices culled from the letters and calls of Chinese women who listened to a nightly radio show "Words on the Night Breeze" that played for seven years from 1989 in China. The show's host and the resulting book's author, Xinran Xue, shares harrowing stories of incest, rape, and abuse endured by her listeners. The stories she tells of natural and personal disaster are riveting; compelling tales of how these "good women" prevailed and thrived against overwhelming odds.Literary Lunch with Xinran Xue
