Lijia Zhang worked as a teenager in a factory producing missiles designed to reach North America, queuing every month for the period police' to give evidence that she wasn't pregnant. In the oppressive routine of guarded compounds and political meetings, Zhang's disillusionment with 'The Glorious Cause' drove her to study English. By narrating the changes in her own life, Zhang chronicles the momentous shift in China's economic policy. Written in English, 'Socialism is Great!' is a testament to Zhang's personal triumph over the controlled existence of her destiny.'
