Captures vividly the experience of three generations of Chinese immigrants in the 1930s.
The themes and motifs about identity can be timeless and can apply to immigrants of this day who face conflicting ideas (oriental vs. occidental).
I also believe that the book serves to help remember Canada's past in terms of human rights and racism.
