Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister takes us on a sweeping journey from exiles' quarters in Japan and Berlin to secret meeting rooms in Moscow, and from the compounds of the Communist elite in Beijing to the corridors of power in democratic Taiwan.

How a single day revealed the history and foreshadowed the future of Shanghai. It is November 12, 1941, and the world is at war. In Shanghai, just weeks before Pearl Harbor, thousands celebrate the birthday of China’s founding father, Sun Yat-sen, in a new city center built to challenge European imperialism. Across town, crowds of Shanghai residents from all walks of life attend the funeral of China’s wealthiest woman, the Chinese-French widow of a Baghdadi Jewish businessman whose death was symbolic of the passing of a generation that had seen Shanghai’s rise to global prominence. But it is the racetrack that attracts the largest crowd of all. At the center of the International Settlement, the heart of Western colonization—but also of Chinese progressivism, art, commerce, cosmopolitanism, and celebrity—Champions Day unfolds, drawing tens of thousands of Chinese spectators and Europeans alike to bet on the horses. In a sharp and lively snapshot of the day’s events, James Carter recaptures the complex history of Old Shanghai. Champions Day is a kaleidoscopic portrait of city poised for revolution.

Little Sister

Patricia Chadwick was one of those children, and Little Sister is her account of growing up in the Feeney sect.

Imagine an eighteen-year-old American girl who has never read a newspaper, watched television, or made a phone call. An eighteen-year-old-girl who has never danced—and this in the 1960s. It is in Cambridge, Massachusetts where Leonard Feeney, a controversial (soon to be excommunicated) Catholic priest, has founded a religious community called the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Center's members—many of them educated at Harvard and Radcliffe—surrender all earthly possessions and aspects of their life, including their children, to him. Patricia Chadwick was one of those children, and Little Sister is her account of growing up in the Feeney sect. Separated from her parents and forbidden to speak to them, Patricia bristles against the community’s draconian rules, yearning for another life. When, at seventeen, she is banished from the Center, her home, she faces the world alone, without skills, family, or money but empowered with faith and a fierce determination to succeed on her own, which she does, rising eventually to the upper echelons of the world of finance and investing. A tale of resilience and grace, Little Sister chronicles, in riveting prose, a surreal childhood and does so without rancor or self-pity.

The year was 1932. Massive unemployment, general despondency, economic chaos-America was facing the Great Depression. It was not the most opportune of times for Margaret Budenz to graduate from college and start her career. Streets is the unique and deeply intimate account of her struggles, hopes, and loves. Rather than be easily dismissed as the wife of Louis Budenz, former executive board member of the Communist Party of America and editor of the Daily Worker, Margaret stands on her own as lover, mother, and as an intellectual struggling against the evils of her day. More than simply a biography, here is history, tracing for all women their gradual liberation, their social and political emergence in America.

Little Sister

To my relief, a waiter appeared bearing a blazing cake and everyone began a
bright chorus of merry singing. We said no ... Oddly, I felt a bit funny, curling up in
bed knowing that Will was just through the wall – but it had been a fullon red wine
, and I was asleep before I knew it. I woke to ... Big fat snowflakes were falling
again and, transfixed, I let my head just rest on the sofa as I watched them float
past.
