`A classic memoir set during the Chinese revolution of the 1940s, The Woman Warrior is inspired by folklore and provides a unique insight into the life of an immigrant in America. When we Chinese girls listened to the adults talking-story, we learned that we failed if we grew up to be but wives or slaves.’

With an introduction by Xiaolu Guo, A classic memoir set during the Chinese revolution of the 1940s and inspired by folklore provides a unique insight into the life of an immigrant in America. When we Chinese girls listened to the adult’s talking-story, we learned that we failed if we grew up to be but wives or slaves. As a young woman, Maxine Hong Kingston felt she had to choose between traditional Chinese culture and modern American society. She tried desperately to find common ground between two different cultures. Still, she found the task impossible until she came under the protection of a grand old Cherokee Indian named Uncle Henry Standing Bear.

Maxine Hong Kingston’s moving memoir, The Woman Warrior: Memoirs of a Girlhood Among Ghosts, describes the author’s experiences in life, from being a child in China and attending boarding school to becoming a journalist, activist, and Nobel Prize winner. Her family was part of the Chinese diaspora that migrated to America for a better life; her father was a translator for Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalist movement and later became Virginia Tech’s president. A combination of Americana and Chinese folklore gives this memoir its unique power.

In this epic debut, a young Chinese girl’s life is irrevocably changed by a legendary tale of servants and masters that combines folklore, history, and science fiction. When she tries to break free from the strict Confucian upbringing imposed upon her, she finds that the answer lies with a mysterious old woman who teaches her magic lessons.

About The Woman Warrior

An introduction by Xiaolu Guo A classic memoir set during the Chinese revolution of the 1940s inspired by folklore provides a unique insight into the life of an immigrant in America. When we Chinese girls listened to the adults telling story, we learned that we failed if we grew up to be but wives or slaves. We could be heroines or swordswomen. Throughout her childhood, Maxine Hong Kingston listened to her mother’s mesmerizing tales of a China where girls are worthless. Tradition is exalted, and only a strong, wily woman can scratch her way upwards.

Growing up in a changing America, surrounded by Chinese myth and memory, this is her story of two cultures and one trenchant, lyrical journey into womanhood. Complex and beautiful, angry and adoring, Maxine Hong Kingston’s The Woman Warrior is a seminal piece of writing about emigration and identity. It won the National Book Critics Circle Award in 1976 and is widely hailed as a feminist classic.
