Publisher's Summary

Inspired by three figures who lived at pivotal moments in Chinese American history, and drawing on his own mixed-race experience, Peter Ho Davies plunges us into what it is like to feel and be treated like a foreigner in the country you call home.

Ranging from the mouth of the Pearl River to the land of golden opportunity, this remarkable audiobook spans 150 years to tell a tale of familial bonds denied, of tenacity and pride, of prejudice and the universal need to belong.

Critic Reviews

"A poignant, cascading four-part novel about being Asian and western, about immigrants and natives, about belonging in a country and one's skin...outstanding." (David Mitchell, Guardian)
"The book's scope is impressive, but what's even more staggering is the utter intimacy and honesty of each character's introspection.... Davies has created a brilliant, absorbing masterpiece." ( Publishers Weekly)
