'Often people ask me, `What's it like for women in China today?' From now on I'll recommend Leslie T. Chang's Factory Girls , which is brilliant, thoughtful, and insightful. This book is also for anyone who's ever wondered how their sneakers, Christmas ornaments, toys, designer clothes, or computers are made. The stories of these factory girls are not only mesmerizing, tragic, and inspiring-true examples of persistence, endurance, and loneliness-but Chang has also woven in her own family's history, shuttling north and south through China to examine this complicated country's past, present, and future' Lisa See, author of Snow Flower and the Secret Fan

Factory Girls offers a previously untold story about the immense population of unknown women who work countless hours, often in hazardous conditions, to provide us with the material goods we take for granted. A book of global significance, it demonstrates how the movement from rural villages to cities is remaking individual lives and the fates of families, transforming our world much as immigration to America's shores remade that society a century ago.
