The Woman Warrior: Memoirs of a Girlhood Among Ghosts

Product Description

Great product!

Imported from USA

The Woman Warrior is a pungent, bitter, but beautifully written memoir of growing up Chinese American in Stockton,
California. Maxine Hong Kingston (China Men) distills the dire lessons of her mother's mesmerizing "talk-story" tales of
a China where girls are worthless, tradition is exalted and only a strong, wily woman can scratch her way upward. The
author's America is a landscape of confounding white "ghosts"--the policeman ghost, the social worker ghost--with
equally rigid, but very different rules. Like the woman warrior of the title, Kingston carries the crimes against her
family carved into her back by her parents in testimony to and defiance of the pain.
