Dreaming of Glistening Pomelos by Flo Oy Wong

SKU: 9781732619807

Dreaming of Glistening Pomelos is a tribute to Flo Oy Wong's eightieth birthday in October 2018. The thirty-six poems and twelve graphite drawings from her Oakland Chinatown Series honor her immigrant parents who were impacted by the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Law. The book provides a glimpse of their working class lives in Oakland, California's Chinatown. Flo tells the stories of the human condition through her family who were born in China and in the U.S. In addition to featuring her parents, siblings, and herself, Flo includes works about single male workers and married men who came to this country from China without their wives and children.
