First Hapa Tales blurb is in! Humbled to share these words of praise from prolific author and educator May-lee Chai:
Sharon H. Chang’s memoir delves deeply into issues of the construction of race, cultural appropriation, and colonization both in Hawai’i and the rest of America. From Hollywood to Honolulu to the techie capital of Seattle, Chang explores what it means to be a Mixed-Race Asian American woman today with candor and courage.
May-lee is a beautifully gifted, award-winning Asian American Mixed writer. She has published multiple books, essays, stories, nonfiction and fiction, among others. I read, and was inspired by, her poignant mixed-race memoir Hapa Girl many years ago. So, as you can imagine, it is such an honor to receive her recommendation for my memoir now. Thank you, thank you May-lee from the bottom of my heart for your sisterhood and support. May-lee has an exciting new book coming soon herself Useful Phrases For Immigrants (Oct 2018).
