It's been 10 years since this incredibly funny and touching tale of growing up in Vancouver's Chinatown in the 1940's and 50's was first published. To celebrate, we have published a 10th Anniversary edition with a brand new foreword written by current CCHSBC Vice-President and local historian, John Atkin.
This engaging work is more than just a personal memoir; it is a social and cultural history of Vancouver's Chinatown and its denizens in their homes, shops, restaurants, hotels, schoolrooms and social clubs, told up-close-and-personal, by a master storyteller. Don't miss out on this final opportunity to own a copy of this incredible story!
