The Lucky Ones
- One Family and the Extraordinary Invention of Chinese America
- By: Mae M. Ngai
- Narrated by: Angela Lin
- Length: 8 hrs and 58 mins
If you're Irish American or African American or Eastern European Jewish American, there's a rich literature to give you a sense of your family's arrival-in-America story. Until now, that hasn't been the case for Chinese Americans. From noted historian Mae Ngai, The Lucky Ones uncovers the three-generational saga of the Tape family. It's a sweeping story centered on patriarch Jeu Dips' (Joseph Tapes') self-invention as an immigration broker in post-gold rush San Francisco, and the extraordinary rise it enables.
not the panoramic epic I expected
