Publisher's Summary

Plant Your Feet Firmly is an intimate glimpse of Asian America. Through the pages of seven short stories, the listener is treated to a delicate taste of ordinary people living extraordinary lives - from a cool grandpa to a grieving mother to a disillusioned husband.

In a sampling, "Mothers and Wives" lives up to the standard of excellence set by this collection. College classmates gather for their regular dinner and drinks, all women of distinction and best buds from school, mulling over the news that one of their own is divorcing. As they share and care, there are more secrets floating around than ice in their drinks. But one member holds her betrayal close to her heart, never guessing that a casual question could derail her life and cast a naked spotlight on her own marriage.

Another juicy offering, "Cosmetics" is the charming, funny story chronicling letters between a grandpa ("No grandpa Paul for me, just grandpa!") and his granddaughter. This Starbucks coffee drinking grandfather is not just another gramps! His tongue in cheek commentaries and keen perspective of human behavior will have you laughing all day long. "Plant Your Feet Firmly, on Two Moving Boats" is a lesson in political politeness concerning Asian Americans. If "Cosmetics" makes you laugh, this story will make you howl - told only as Marie Chow can, with humor, pathos, and an uncanny understanding of the human psyche.
