Borrowing History: HPL has moved to a new
library system. Please consider using the Completed
Shelf Feature. The Completed and For Later shelf features
are great ways to track what you've borrowed and what you would like to borrow. Borrowing history is limited to 500 items to improve site
speed and performance.
Now adults, members of a tight-knit Canadian Chinese family recall their childhood days in Vancouver, B.C. during the 1930s and 1940s. A candid, yet affectionate portrait is drawn of family life and the collective Chinese community. Themes of tenderness and brutality, racism and loyalty, humour and heartbreak are woven into their experiences of that time and place.
