    Kang-i Sun Chang
The book is about the story of Kang-i Sun Chang's father Paul Sun, who, along with numerous others, was imprisoned in Taiwan more than 55 years ago during what was known as the "White Terror" episode. The "White Terror" period usually refers to the decade following Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalist government's withdrawal from mainland China into Taiwan in mid-December, 1949, during which a policy of "better to kill ten thousand by mistake than to set one free by oversight" was widely implemented. In that period many innocent civilians became victims of ferocious searches and persecution. Chang's father was in prison from 1950 to 1960. At the time of the arrest, the author was not even 6 years old: when her father finally returned home, she was already 16.
