it was amazing
Read from August 15 to 21, 2010

I read this book and immediately went to the library to get a copy of Woman Warrior. These are two pieces of a beautiful memoir filled with magic and the hardships experienced by the author's ancestors in coming back and forth between China and America, eventually establishing themselves in California. China Men in particular gives a litany of the difficulties encountered in the Chinese indenturement and the struggle to become Americans. I liked the books so much in fact that I have just ordered the combined set from Amazon so I will have them to reread.
