Summary
It was like a scene out of a thriller: one morning in April 2012, China's most famous political activist - a blind, self-taught lawyer - climbed over the wall of his heavily guarded home and escaped. For days, his whereabouts remained unknown; after he turned up at the American embassy in Beijing, a furious round of high-level negotiations finally led to his release and a new life in the United States. Both a riveting memoir and a revealing portrait of modern China, this book tells the story of a man who has never accepted limits and always believed in the power of the human spirit
