KIRKUS REVIEW

An honest self-portrait of a 24-year old Chinese girl, a first generation American brought up in San Francisco's Chinatown. Told in the third person, this is an account of an adjustment between two civilizations. Jade Snow took the independent line, of which her family disapproved, but the American training was too strong. There was Mills College, war work and poetry and a pottery shop which brought them together again. An intimate picture of a Chinese household and a fine study of our Chinese countrymen.
