Synopsis : A moving and beautifully written account of how aChinese peasant boy was selected to attendMadam Mao's Peking Dance Academy. Afterreaching the top of his class he won ascholarship to the US where he defected eventhough it meant that he would never see his familyagain. He went on to be one of the West's bestballet dancers. Set to be a bestseller.

Critique: "An inspiring true story of courage and determination." (Adeline Yen Mah, author of Falling Leaves)

"His vivid descriptions of life at home, surviving on family love and dried yams, and of the harsh regime, make riveting reading." (The Guardian)

"[A] heartening rags-to-riches story." (Publishers Weekly)

"Mao's Last Dancer is a modern fairy-tale. Li Cunxin's story is a breathtaking indictment of brute Communism, told with great honesty." (Kate Adie)

"Appalling, brave and funny ... you cannot do better than to read this book." (The Mail on Sunday)

"The listener's interest never flags ... [Paul English] imbues the narrative with ingenuousness and enthusiasm. The result is an audiobook that is superior to its source." (AudioFile Magazine)
