Zhang Xinxin and Sang Ye co-authored this pioneering work of Chinese oral history - it created an enormous sensation in China when the histories eventually collected into a book began appearing in Chinese journals in the mid-80s. They didn't use a tape recorder, however, re-creating the interviews later (a method still used by Liao Yiwu, author of the Corpse Walker). I think Sang Ye's later work as an oral historian is better - he began using a tape recorder and the amount of detail and the sense of voice is so much stronger in the work he did after this.
