These eight short stories explore the generational gap between Chinese immigrants and their “Americanized” children. The children look wonderingly at their immigrant parents’ efforts to assimilate while the older generation struggles to understand their children’s’ life styles and choices. The book illustrates the quintessential American story of immigration, assimilation and the tensions with other communities that occur as a result.
