This reminded me of the Three Body Problem (Criticism)

I got the chance to hang out with Dr. Ming Wang a few months ago. He was a victim of the cultural revolution and has a pretty crazy story. He learned to dance and play the erhu (like a chinese violin) to survive as part of the Communist Party propaganda department until Mao died. He managed to make it to the US and eventually became an eye surgeon. I got a kick out of him playing the Tennessee Waltz for me on his erhu. We spent a lot of time talking about what we can do about China, and some of the kinda underground work he has going on there.

His book:
From Darkness to Sight: A Journey from Hardship to Healing https://www.amazon.com/dp/1939447917/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_Q86NDbNH5B1A8

Just a solid sci-fi trilogy that kicks off during the Cultural Revolution. Good stuff.
