Bejing Coma is masterful,beautiful,and tells a cruel story. Excellently and poetically written, at the same time revealing the horrors of Mao's total infliction of inhumanity upon the Chinese people.the development of the Tiananmen square uprising is told through the remembrances of the narrator, as he is totally isolated by his injuries from the present. This book is must reading for anyone interested in modern china. I highly recommend it, and have read it a second time, wishing it would never end.
