Summary
Originally published in Hong Kong, Xu Hongci's remarkable memoir recounts his life from childhood through his final prison break. After discovering his story in a Hong Kong library, the journalist Erling Hoh tracked down the original manuscript and complied this condensed translation, which includes background on this turbulent period, an epilogue that follows Xu Hongci up to his death, and Xu Hongci's own drawings and maps. Both a historical narrative and an exhilarating prison break thriller, No Wall Too High tells the unique story of a man who insisted on freedom, even under the most treacherous circumstances
