KIRKUS REVIEW

Shake Hands With the Dragon proved much more widely popular than one might have expected. This is an excellent sequel, -- amusing, interesting, observant reporting on Chinese characteristics, on a leisurely way of life, on unpredictable responses to situations. Once again his setting is Chinatown, New York. Here is their technique of living, their tolerance, saving face, the Chinese attitude towards time, much about tea, music, theatre, art, poetry, food, philosophy, humor, medicine, marriage and women, the conflict of the old and the new. And there's a new note in reports from Kung, Glick's friend, who becomes a soldier, and confounds the Army with his Chinese attitude towards the mishaps of his military career. Delightful.
