These acclaimed stories describe what it's like to be half-white, half-Asian in contemporary North America. The stories tell of family and identity, migration and integration, culture and self-discovery through family history, memory, glimpses of life and the occasional recipe. Diamond Grill is a rich banquet where Salisbury steak shares a menu with chicken fried rice and bird's nest soup sets the stage for Christmas plum pudding; where white prejudices against Chinese people and Chinese prejudices against white people simmer behind the shiny-clean surface of the cafe.
