An Uncut Diamond: A Memoir
By Angela N. Hsi, Ph.D.
An Uncut Diamond: A Memoir is the fascinating, brutally honest story of one young woman’s pursuit of academic freedom across two continents, rife cross-cultural misconceptions, and distrust. It is the story of her encounters with the pivotal points of history, societal upheavals, and political clashes that have shaped both the modern world and a modern woman. It also relates the very personal story of family ties, which shatter and strengthen, even as her own dreams alternately come to fruition and perish. An Uncut Diamond is a compelling tale filled with the author’s experience of sweeping changes, both private and public, and observations and learning that could only be gained by living through such times. It is a true story. It is her story.
