American Chinatown: A People's History
Chinatown: A People’s History
Bonnie Tsui, Journalist, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, Atlantic Monthly, Mother Jones
Tsui takes an affectionate, attentive look at the Chinatown 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, New York, LA and Honolulu – and makes her final stop in Las Vegas. Tsui captures their stories, giving a deeper look into what “Chinatown” means to its inhabitants.
