Book review

Dim Sum Stories: A Chinatown Childhood by Larry Wong, a local historian and past president of the Chinese Canadian Historical Society, is about his 1940s-1960s childhood in Vancouver's Chinatown. A close friend of Wayson Choy, author of The Jade Peony, Wong's personal short stories reveal a world filled with people from diverse ethnic backgrounds. This is a totally engaging memoir, filled with childhood memories of life in a Chinese Canadian family whose father came to Vancouver in 1911. But it is more than a personal memoir; it is also a social and cultural history of Vancouver's Chinatown and its denizens in their homes, shops, restaurants, hotels, schoolrooms and social clubs, told up-close-and-personal, by a master storyteller. Larry Wong tickles your funny bone and moves you to tears as he skilfully integrates colourful anecdotes with historical facts in such a way that the reader is at once entertained and educated. -- Jan Walls, Professor Emeritus, Simon Fraser University An exciting and groundbreaking series, Gold Mountain Stories boldly reimagines North America s engagement with the Pacific world by bringing to light the long ignored and untold stories of Chinese migrant experiences through their interactions and relationships with other Asian migrants, indigenous peoples, and European migrants.
