  • The Kitchen God's Wife


    The Kitchen God's Wife explores the heritage of Pearl, a Chinese-American woman who has never really felt in touch with her family. When she is called home to San Francisco for an engagement party and a funeral, her aunt gives her an ultimatum, and then does the same with Pearl's mother Winnie, insisting that she tell Pearl about her troubled past. As Winnie reveals her life story, the two women become more deeply connected, reinforcing the novel's themes of cultural identity, family, and understanding.
