Manchurian American is the personal tale of Yupin Wang, who was born in Northeast China (Manchuria) in the 1930s. He is a witness to the Japanese invasion of China and brutal civil wars, an escapee to Taiwan, and an accidental American who came to the United States in the 1950s and made it. This is a poignant story of the human spirit triumphing over obstacles of nationality, race, and time. Manchurian American is about love, family, friendship, and gratitude for an adopted country. Wang's personal crusade in a new, bewildering land is as relevant today for him as it is for all Americans who live in a land of immigrants. From his first jobs on the boardwalk in Long Beach, Long Island, to his position as an executive with IBM, Yupin Wang brings wonder, frustration, and success to the story of his journey to become the Manchurian American. This story will appeal to a wide audience: Americans with immigrant roots, Americans who experienced war firsthand, baby boomers, and a younger generation seeking an explanation of the past. Both men and women will find it touching and engaging. Asians and new immigrants to America will find it inspiring.
