Dim Sum Stories: A Chinatown Childhood, by Larry Wong
Filled with childhood memories of life in a Chinese Canadian family whose father came to Vancouver in 1911, this very personal memoir is also 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.
