Description:

8vo. (22 cm.) vii, 248p. Illustrated with black and white line drawings as head pieces for each chapter by Kathryn Uhl. Red and black pictorial endpapers. Green paper made to look like woven cloth over black linen spine with white letters on the spine and a vignette in red on the spine of a winged creature. Just touches of wear to extremities, covers clean, spine letters and decorations bright, else near fine to fine with no internal markings. Dust jacket slightly chipped around the edges and very lightly soiled but not price-clipped. "Jade Snow Wong grew up in a traditional Chinese family in San Francisco's pre-World War II Chinatown. It was a world in which wives were introduced by their husbands as "my inferior woman," rules were taught with corporal punishment, and home life was literally connected to the family business. She becomes determined to go to college and gain more independence than she has been taught to expect. Her decision sets off a balancing process between cultures that Jade Snow Wong, in correct Chinese third person, explores with humor, reverence, and philosophical insight." [from the OCLC record] Jade Snow Wong became an accomplished artist and ceramist. "The drawings are authentic and accurate in detail and represent many hours of research on the part of Kathryn Uhl Ball, who co-operated fully to make this book a careful record of an American Chinese girls firts twenty-four years." [from Author's Note]. Bookseller Inventory #
