This is a map that they chart.

CHEN Jiang Hong Mao et moi Éd. Ecole des loisirs, 2008. L'auteur a longtemps porté ce projet de livre autobiographique. Ce sont les enfants rencontrés en classe, curieux de son enfance, de la Chine et de son histoire contemporaine, qui l’ont convaincu de s’y lancer. Dans ce récit, il livre les faits bruts, sans porter aucun jugement, en montrant des générations sacrifiées sur l’autel du communisme, mais qui incarnaient un idéal sans équivalent dans le monde contemporain.
