The Tastes Of Memory

A fine reminscence from a Chinese childhood - capitalist subtext in a bottle of Tang in Communist China, and the relationship between fathers and daughters

I wonder how that television commercial got made, and did the apparently censorious Chinese government think of the social implications of exposure to American life through Tang?
