In this fascinating story, Der Ling reveals the history and true story behind the character of the Empress-Dowager Cixi - not the monster of depravity depicted in the popular press. but an aging woman who loved beautiful things and had many regrets about the past. Originally published as “Old Buddha” this thoughtful and well written account reveals the tragic story of the end of the Qing Dynasty, compassionately and truthful told through the articulate writing of a trusted friend.
