China Men by Maxine Hong Kingston

Woven from memory, myth, and fact - a journey into the hearts and minds of Chinese men in America: the grandfather who slaved in the Sierra Nevadas on the transcontinental railroad... the father who danced down Fifth Avenue, like Fred Astaire, on days off from the laundry... and the son who returned to China to find release from his dead mother's angry spirit.

Here is an accomplished storyteller's remarkably beautiful tale of what they endured in a strange new land.
