I met Lisa many years ago, and I have interviewed her every time she came through Portland, and read her books even if she didn’t.  Her novels illustrate the lives and tribulations of the Chinese in China, and after they migrated here.

This is from her website, describing her latest work, China Dolls:

It’s 1938 in San Francisco: a world’s fair is preparing to open on Treasure Island, a war is brewing overseas, and the city is alive with possibilities. Grace, Helen, and Ruby, three young women from very different backgrounds, meet by chance at the exclusive and glamorous Forbidden City nightclub.
