Publisher's Synopsis

Set in early twentieth-century Chinatown, Mrs. Spring Fragrance and Other Writings is the story of Chinese men and women living in the United States as they wrestle with prejudice and forced detention; choose to become wholly Americanised or stay true to their cultural heritage; meet both kind and predatory Americans; and as they find love, purpose, and understanding within their families. By turns ironic and heart-rending, these stories are windows into the lives of everyday people in an unforgiving, often racist city, who find solidarity and hope in the most unexpected places.
