My House Has Two Doors is one of a multi-book autobiography by Han Suyin.[1] It tells of her life from 1948 to 1980, including the real-life love-affair that was the basis for her novel A Many-Splendoured Thing. She went from Hong Kong to Malaya, where she witnessed the Communist insurgency she later described in her novel And the Rain My Drink. She also tells of her return to China and her impression of the early years of Communist rule.

The second half of the book is sometimes published as a separate work entitled Phoenix Harvest.
