July Books 25) The Woman Warrior: Memoirs of a Girlhood among Ghosts, by Maxine Hong Kingston

An interesting memoir of life as a Chinese girl growing up in California, very much concentrating on the Chinese family background and history, including untold stories, the nearness of myth and of symbolism, the alienness of the Californian environment (the "ghosts" of the title are non-Chinese people). A good read, also mercifully short.
