    About this book

China’s last eunuch Sun Yaoting died in December 1996 at age 94. He took with him intimate stories of the last vestiges of Imperial China and was himself the last in the line of eunuchs who had served the royal family for more than 2,000 years. His personal journey from poor farm boy to revered servant to Pu Yi and Wanrong, China’s last emperor and empress, is an amazing journey which also chronicles nearly one century of turbulence and upheaval in Chinese history and culture. This book is a unique glimpse into China’s storied past from the perspective of a man who faithfully served China’s Imperial Family in the Forbidden City but was later forced to maneuver himself among the tremendous and often turbulent events that became the history of 20th Century China. As Sun Yaoting recalls his experiences, he also recounts the life of the dwindling eunuch community in China.
