Bone: Novel, a Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this profoundly moving novel, Fae Myenne Ng takes readers into the hidden heart of San Francisco's Chinatown, to a world of family secrets, hidden shames, and the lost bones of a "paper father." It is a world in which two generations of the Leong family live in an uneasy tension as they try to fathom the source of the middle daughter Ona's sorrow. Fae Myenne Ng's portraits of the everyday heroism of the Leongs--who inflict deep hurt on each other in their struggles to survive, yet sustain one another with loyalty and love--have made Bone one of the most critically acclaimed novels of recent years and immediately a classic of contemporary American life.

Synopsis:

A profoundly moving journey into San Francisco's Chinatown that is "brutal and poignant, dreamy and gritty, specific to its place and resonant in its implication about what it means to be an American" (Seattle Times/Post-Intelligencer).
