In Mao and Me, Chen Jiang Hong recounts his childhood, telling us much about China's Cultural Revolution in the process. Combining his elegant style of traditional Chinese painting with elements of Japanese anime, Chen has created a visually stunning tableau. The story opens in 1966 when Chen is three. At breakfast one morning, the family hears over the radio that Mao will use his Red Guard to launch a Cultural Revolution. And he does, drastically affecting the daily life of every person in China. Richly description and elegiac, Mao and Me is a remembrance of childhood.
