From the Author
From the Inside Flap
"I'm an aspiring Chinese Canadian writer, and have always been sickened by the mainstream Amy Tan novels. Your book has style, guts and wit - not the usual pathetic Asian identity crisis themes."
"I could relate to just about every emotion and situation, it was eerie. I also talked to a good friend from Vancouver who said he felt like he wrote the book. Did we all turn out this way?...it's really incredible and next time someone asks what the F*ck is wrong with me, I'll just tell them to read it. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
