I Love a Broad Margin to My Life (Vintage International)

Maxine Hong Kingston


In her singular voice—both humble and courageous, touching and humorous—Maxine Hong Kingston supplies us a poignant and lovely memoir-in-verse that captures the knowledge that incorporates age. As she displays on her sixty-five years, she circles from current to earlier and again, from lunch with a author buddy to the funeral of a Vietnam veteran, from her lengthy marriage to her arrest at a peace march in Washington. On her trips as author, peace activist, instructor, and mom, she revisits her such a lot liked characters—Wittman Ah-Sing, the Tripmaster Monkey, and Fa Mook Lan, the lady Warrior—and provides us with a stunning meditation on China then and now. the result's a fabulous account of an American lifetime of nice goal and pleasure, and the tonic knowledge of a author we now have come to cherish.
