A Memoir of Misfortune : A remarkable memoir from a leader of China's democracy movement whose hope for a new life in the United States was beset with tragedy. Su Xiaokang fled China in 1989 following the Tiananmen Square uprising. After two years his family was finally able to join him, but then, just as their lives began to regain stability, a car accident left his wife unable to move or speak. Su eloquently describes his inner torment and his desperate search for a miracle cure, all the time maneuvering through the exile's world, as he and his wife haltingly learn to make a new life together.
