Not sci-fi. Not baseball.
It is a waste of time.

This was an outstanding reading experience for me. I enjoyed seeing the ways the various characters cropped up and related to one another in these connected short stories. I also really appreciated the exploration of different generational experiences, with stories set from the 70s until the 2020s. I thought the exploration of Chinese vs. American POVs was equal parts fascinating and humorous. I’ll be revisiting this again in the future.

Jen tracks the assimilation of a Shanghainese immigrant, Yifeng (Ralph) Chang, to the United States in the 1940s and 1950s (possibly 1960s as well). It is a rather unsympathetic look, as Chang gets taken in by a fellow immigrant and conman, Grover. Although Ralph is the protagonist, Jen's real focus is on women: his sister, Theresa, and wife, Helen, whose lives are perhaps constrained in a different way in the United States than they were in Shanghai. The lives of this family are told in very short chapters in a third-person, detached sort of way. Although the novel is a bit cynical and dark about the American dream, it is overall fairly melancholy, as Ralph reflects of the wreckage of their lives. For some reason Jen's style did not mesh with me, and overall I was just as detached from these characters as the Jen's narrator.… (mer)
