Wittman Ah Sing, a young Chinese-American hippie in San Francisco in the late 1960s, is as American as James Dean. He also bears a striking resemblance to Monkey, the trickster-saint of Chinese legend. Driven by his dream of writing and staging an epic production of interwoven Chinese novels and folktales, his life becomes an extraordinary journey through an era as fantastic as his ambition--told in a novel by turns surreal, exuberantly charged with spectacle, violence, and Chinese "talk-story," and wildly, bitterly funny.
