These nine stories by Chinese young people describe Chinatowns: those of the past, those that were moved, those that are redesigned and lose their character, and those of the future. They describe the importance of Chinatown as a source of Chinese identity, a familiar meeting place for people, and a place to find foods, ingredients, and medicines not found or understood elsewhere.

Editorial Reviews

"Imaginative, visceral, and at times recalcitrant ... [A] clarion reminder to diaspora and immigrant folks that healing is neither shameful nor selfish, but a necessary process for personal and collective liberation." --Herizons
