    1 thought on “Cultural Revolution

    1. I feel really impressed by and indebted to this book, which was written about gay Asian-American experience and published in 1994. I want to read more from Norman Wong.

    2. in its best parts, the language is spare and precise and the story/ies quirkye book becomes uneven as these interlinked stories progress. In the middle of the book, I found myself asking what authors must dread their readers posing: "So what?"The end seemed to relate to the beginning but I could have done without the middle.
