About this title:

Synopsis: The poems in this collection attempt to give a glimpse of life both in China and in one country, Jamaica, in which Chinese immigrants have settled. By preserving some of the stories that were passed down to him by his father about life in China, Easton Lee hopes to ensure that the history and lore of the great Chinese civilisation will help offspring of the present and future generations to understand their culture with pride and dignity.

The stories of life in China are blended with the poet’s experience growing up behind the counter of his father’s grocery shop in rural Jamaica.

Readers familiar with Easton Lee’s first collection, From Behind the Counter (1998) will welcome this new volume for the wit and humour which the author employs so effectively to capture the essence of Chinese life and culture.
