A compelling story of life in the Chinese-American community of New York City. The pages of this novel come alive with the maneuvers of the Tong leaders, the colorful visitors to the Money Come mah-jongg clubhouse, and the complex gossip of closely knit Chinatown.

Only a Chinese American could have written a novel of such vigor and authenticity. In 1989 it was made into a feature film by the highly respected director Wayne Wang.

Review: Eat A Bowl Of Tea

User Review  - Goodreads

The book kind of rattled on for me, a lot of unnecessary characters and drama, but maybe I missed the point. Anyway, I liked the end and I liked their journey. Read full review
