Carolyn Koo

University of California Press

Carolyn Koo is a Chinese born in the United States, and grew up in a suburb of New York City where Chinese faces were few and far between. She remembers not appreciating her Chinese school experience, mostly because it involved extra work and Saturday classes. Carolyn tells of her grandfather's reunion with his family with whom he was separated for 30 years, and narrates her grandparents' life stories. She discusses her efforts in getting to know her grandfather better and the great things that she discovered about him.
