Default The Fortune Cookie Chronicles

Hi -

I just finished The Fortune Cookie Chronicles by Jennifer 8. Lee, and
its a really good book.

It takes an investigation into where fortune cookies came from and turns
it into a fascinating story of how Chinese food came to be so popular in
America; what the lives of those who came from China to create and work
in them has been like; and how American Chinese food has come to be the
way it is.

Cheers,

Ian
