Summary
Inhabiting four lives, a railroad baron's valet who unwittingly ignites an explosion in Chinese labor, Hollywood's first Chinese movie star, a hate-crime victim whose death mobilizes Asian Americans, and a biracial writer visiting China for an adoption, this novel captures and capsizes over a century of history, showing that even as family bonds are denied and broken, a community can survive, as much through love as blood
