Praise for China Boy

“What a knockout. An incredibly rich and new voice or American literature…China Boy grabs the reader’s heart and won’t let go…A wonder of a story.”—Amy Tan, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Joy Luck Club

“It would be hard to find a more all-American story than the delightful China Boy. Lee is a natural storyteller.”—TIME

“Marvelous…one small boy’s adjustment to Western culture…a pure delight.”—The Washington Post Book World
“A robust, startling book…hilariously poignant…a fascinating, evocative portrait of the Chinese community in California in the 1950s, caught between two complex, demanding cultures.”—The New York Times Book Review
