Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fiction. Asian American Studies. "Frank Chin's unique literary recipe-red-hot chop suey laced with laughing powder and amphetamines-makes most so-called 'modern' writing look old-fashioned, chauvinistic, and tedious"-Tom Robbins. "Donald Duk, 12-year-old son of a Chinatown chef in San Francisco, hates his name and, even worse, hates being Chinese. In his dreams he tells his idol, Fred Astaire, about relatives so determined not to become American that they adjust the color on their televisions to make everyone look Asian"-The Miami Herald. Frank Chin is the author of an American Book Award-winning short story collection, THE CHINAMAN PACIFIC and FRISCO R.R. CO., and a novel, GUNGA DIN HIGHWAY.

Synopsis:

"The 11-year-old hero of Mr. Chin's inventive, energetic first novel is educated in his Chinese heritage through a series of astonishing dreams about working on the Central Pacific Railroad in 1869."--New York Times Book Review "Doubt not the ability of the gifted, passionate, funny Mr. Chin."--New Yorker
