A fun, informative read. While the over-arching theme is the fortune cookie, Ms. Lee examines the whole range of American Chinese Food. While most of the book is tinged with humor, there were 2 chapters that were quite serious. The one dealing with the Chinese restaurant workers and the other with a family that buys a Chinese restaurant. One shows the promise and hope that America is for immagrants and one shows the reality of what it can be.
Overall, a fun book.
