Eat a Bowl of Tea: Celebrating an American Classic
Join authors and scholars Shawn Wong, Jeffrey Paul Chan, and King-Kok Cheung for a virtual celebration of the re-issue of Louis Chu’s classic novel Eat a Bowl of Tea and a panel discussion about the legacy of Asian American Literature. In his groundbreaking and influential novel, Louis Chu tells the story of a newlywed couple after the close of the second World War, when racist immigration laws trapped enclaves of old men in Chinatowns across the United States and prevented their wives or families from joining them. As the first novel to capture the tone and sensibility of everyday life in an American Chinatown, it is an incisive portrayal of Chinese America on the brink of change. Eat a Bowl of Tea is the inaugural book in The University of Washington Press’s Shawn Wong Book Fund, which supports books in Asian American literature and Asian American studies.
