Mars

China Mountain Zhang by Maureen F. McHugh

Cool book. Strange title. It's an alternative future where USA went through a 'Communist revolution'. China is looked up to for their well run society. The main character is 'bent' (homosexual). Some of the stories take place on the communes on Earth, and others in New York and in China. There are a few characters that are sort of interlinked in these stories. They were very interesting vignettes of life in a world dominated by 'Communism' where USA is not the global hegemon.

Rating: ★★★★ Book #24 in my My 2020 Reading Challenge
