AMERICAN CHINATOWN. A People's History of Five Neighborhoods

New York: Free Press, (2009). First edition. Hardcover. Signed and inscribed by the author on the title page. Acclaimed travel writer Bonie Tsui takes an affectionate and attentive look at the neighborhood that has bewitched her since childhood, when she eagerly awaited her grandfather's return from the fortune-cookie factory. Tsui visits the country's four most famous Chinatowns; San Francisco (the oldest), New York (the biggest), Los Angeles (the film icon), Honolulu (the crossroads), and makes her final, fascinating stop in Las Vegas (the newest; this Chinatown began as a mall); in her explorations, she focuses on the remarkable experiences of ordinary people, everyone from first-to fifth-generation Chinese Americans. 262 pages illustrated from drawings and photographs. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Item #14390
