Summary

This is poet and essayist Wong's second novel. Raymond Ding, 37-year-old assistant director of Jack London College's Office of Minority Affairs, is recently divorced from a Chinese woman. He is now mired in the dilemma between upholding the purity of his ancestral genes and striking out toward an ideal of American love. Aurora Crane, a photojournalist of half-Japanese, half-Irish descent, completely captivates him but his ethnic guilt nearly destroys the relationship.
