Maxine Hong Kingston weaves an entrancing tapestry of family stories, Chinese history and folklore, and the history of the Chinese men in her family in America. The result is an extraordinary memoir. Narrator Kate Reading conveys the cadence of Chinese-American speech and ably handles Chinese phrases. Her reading remains clear and strong throughout. This is a good choice for audio, engrossing and involving, with a number of shorter pieces that do not require one to keep up with dates, sequence of events or plot, but build upon one another. Listeners will come away with a greater appreciation not only of Chinese culture, but also of the role "China Men" and women have played in the development of our nation.
