About this title


Book by Lim, Sing

From the Inside Flap:

Life in Vancouver?s Chinese community is revealed in this memoir by artist Sing Lim. These are his memories of his childhood in the 1920s. Sing Lim lived with his parents, brothers, and sister in a prison-like apartment. He describes his neighbors in vivid detail: the music makers in the apartment below, the shopkeepers on the ground level, the herbalist. Readers share his experiences at Chinese festivals, grand funerals, ritual ceremonies, and secret tong societies. A book rich in information and personal anecdotes.
