Short biography
Jung Chang was born in Yibin, Sichuan Province, China, in 1952. She was a Red Guard briefly at the age of fourteen and then worked as a peasant, a "barefoot" doctor, a steelworker, and an electrician before becoming an English language student and, later, an assistant lecturer at Sichuan University. She left China for Britain in 1978 and was subsequently awarded a scholarship by York University (UK), where she obtained a PhD. in Linguistics in 1982--the first person from the People's Republic of China to receive a doctorate from a British university. Jung Chang lives in London. [from Wild Swans (1991)]
