"A tightly plotted thriller that is also an imaginative thought experiment conducted with the past... Brilliant and often hilarious." - Chicago Tribune

Susan Choi's Pulitzer-nominated American Woman is an exhibarating re-imagining of the Patty Hearst kidnap saga that gripped the world over forty years ago.  Choi's novel explored the psychology of young radicals, the intensity of their isolated existence, and the paranoia and fear that undermine their ideals.  Moderated by Xu Xi.
