Diamond Grill

NeWest, 1996 - Fiction - 176 pages
10 Reviews
These acclaimed stories describe what it's like to be half-white, half-Asian in contemporary North America. The stories tell of family and identity, migration and integration, culture and self-discovery through family history, memory, glimpses of life and the occasional recipe. Diamond Grill is a rich banquet where Salisbury steak shares a menu with chicken fried rice and bird's nest soup sets the stage for Christmas plum pudding; where white prejudices against Chinese people and Chinese prejudices against white people simmer behind the shiny-clean surface of the cafe.

User Review  - Mary Stregger - Goodreads

This is definitely a cross between poetry & prose and, if you find non-linear plots uncomfortable, don't try this one. Overall, I enjoyed the beauty of this work. Read full review
