Dim Sum Stories: A Chinatown Childhood

Larry Wong

Description & Details

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!
