Paper Shadows
Shortlisted for the Governor General's Award A startlingly vivid memoir of a Chinatown childhood by the author of the award-winning novel The Jade Peony. Three weeks before his 57th birthday, novelist Wayson Choy received a surprising phone call during his publicity tour: a mysterious woman told him that he had been adopted. Inspired by this astonishing revelation, this beautifully-wrought memoir reveals uncanny similarities between the colorful secrets that enrich Wayson Choy's award-winning novel set in prewar Chinatown and the subsequently discovered secrets of his own life.
