Winner of the National Book Award

Woven from memory, myth, and fact, this book is a journey into the hearts and minds of Chinese men in America. Their life stories include the grandfather who slaved in the Sierra Nevadas on the transcontinental railroad, the father who danced down Fifth Avenue like Fred Astaire on days off from the laundry, and the son who returned to China to find release from his dead mother's angry spirit. China Men is an accomplished story-teller's remarkably beautiful tale of what they endured in a strange new land.


"China Men is a voyage itself, to China and back. It will come to be regarded as one of the classic American works on the experience of immigration...a work of enormous power, feeling, and understanding."--Los Angeles Herald Examiner
