This is the first biography about Anna May Wong, an extraordinary Asian American woman who became the country's most famous film actress of Chinese descent. This multi-faceted tale takes the reader on a compelling journey through Wong's early years in Los Angeles and her first Hollywood pictures--films that led to her international fame. It is also an examination into the scope of race, gender, and power and their impact on her personal growth as a Chinese American.
