Summary

Kai Ting, the narrator, is the fourth child, only son, sole American-born member of a well-bred Shanghai family that fled China in the 1940's to settle in the Panhandle, a San Francisco slum.Kai, 7 years old when the novel begins, describes some of the conundrums of a child trying to reconcile two cultures.(N Y Times Book Rev)

Warm, funny, and deeply moving, Gus Lee's semi-autobiographical account of growing up in a conflict-ridden family, unable to fully embrace either American or Chinese culture, is an enthralling story of family relationships, the perils of boyhood, and the difficulty of being Chinese in 1950's San Francisco.
