Bound Feet and Western Dress

Author: Pang-Mei Natasha Chang

Genre: Adult Non-fiction

Reviewed by: Elaine, Newbridge Library

A captivating memoir of two Chinese women from different generations in the same family. The novel handles their stories in a dual-perspective, coherent narrative that covers the time period from the early 1900s to the late 1900s. The narrative focuses intimately on a family’s fortunes during this time and touches only lightly on the wider political occurrences of this time. Nevertheless, it is an
interesting read.
