The Chinese Knot and Other Stories
|In this new
collection, award-winning author Lien Chao weaves together
these emotionally charged short stories focusing on Chinese
immigrants in Toronto’s multiracial neighbourhoods. In
Chinatown and mixed neighbourhoods, in condos and tenements,
in public parks and in college, the protagonists of these
stories find love, face loneliness, confront generational
crises, and overcome racial stereotypes as they evolve and
grow in this exciting, ever-changing multicultural society.
"The Chinese Knot offers the reader a realistic view of the Chinese immigrant, making it a great resource as either a study guide or a way to find a sympathetic voice for anyone who has ever moved their entire life to new surroundings. Heartfelt and provocative, it opens the way for discussions on multicultural issues and racial stereotypes."
