More > or through friendship. My friend since childhood – and my writing colleague – has written a narrative gem of a chapbook. Not a word is wasted. Wayson Choy, author This is a totally engaging memoir, filled with childhood memories of life in a Chinese Canadian family whose father came to Vancouver in 1911. But it is more than a personal memoir; it 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.
