General Why do you write about China? My great-great-grandfather came here to work on the building of the transcontinental railroad.
I have hundreds of relatives in Los Angeles, of which there are only about a dozen who look like me. All writers are told to write what they know.
My family is what I know. I try to bring what I know from both cultures into my work. These are the universals; the differences are in the particulars of customs and culture. It seems that close friendships between women is one of the recurrent themes in your books. You wrote about the lao tong relationship in Snow Flower and the Secret Fan; you wrote about sister-wives in Peony in Love.
In Shanghai Girls, you wrote about sisters. In China Dolls, you have three friends. Why do you think close friendships between women are very important? Each of these relationships—friends for life, sister-wives, and actual sisters—is very different. At the same time, they are uniquely female.

They are important to me as a woman, wife, mother, and now grandmother. All that said, I actually think men are extraordinarily important in my stories. They often set the plot into action as men so often do in real life. I have to be true to the time period in which China Dolls takes place, right?
In the s and s, men were very much in control. In China Dolls, the character of Joe is central to the love triangle, Charlie Low runs the Forbidden City nightclub and hires the girls, Eddie is a male dancer who has a secret.Best deals on the largest selection of karaoke machines, players, equipment, accessories, and karaoke music & songs on CDG to DVD.
