The Jade PeonyBook - 1995
Wayson Choy's Chinatown is a community of unforgettable individuals who are "neither this nor that," neither entirely Canadian nor Chinese. But with each other's help, they survive hardship and heartbreak with grit and humour.
From Library Staff
You would loved reading about Vancouver’s Chinatown in the early to mid 20th century and the effects of WW2 had on the community, as well as Choy’s own thinly disguised autobiographical story of coming to terms with being gay during that time. Also available in eBook.
