Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this deeply stirring novel, acclaimed author Cristina García follows one extraordinary family through four generations, from China to Cuba to America. Wonderfully evocative of time and place, rendered in the lyrical prose that is García’s hallmark, Monkey Hunting is an emotionally resonant tale of immigration, assimilation, and the prevailing integrity of self.

Synopsis:

An evocative saga of a Chinese-Cuban family begins in 1857, when Chen Pan signs a contract that takes him from China to Cuba and enslavement on a sugarcane plantation and follows him as finds prosperity in Havana's Chinatown and establishes a dynasty, in a story that interweaves his life with those of two descendants, a granddaughter and great-grandson. Reader's Guide included. Reprint.
