Disappearing Moon Cafe was a stunning debut novel that has become a Canadian literary classic. An unflinchingly honest portrait of a Chinese Canadian family that pulses with life and moral tensions, this family saga takes the reader from the wilderness in nineteenth-century British Columbia to late twentieth-century Hong Kong, to Vancouver's Chinatown.

Intricate and lyrical, suspenseful and emotionally rich, it is a riveting story of four generations of women whose lives are haunted by the secrets and lies of their ancestors but also by the racial divides and discrimination that shaped the lives of the first generation of Chinese immigrants to Canada.

SKY Lee grew up in Port Albermi, BC. In the late 1960s, she was a founder of the Asian Canadian Writers' Workshop. Her debut novel, Disappearing Moon Cafe, was nominated for a Governor General's Literary Award and won the City of Vancouver Book Award. SKY Lee currently resides in Toronto.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great read 4 generations of a Chinese family in BC. The back and forth between generations takes some time to get used to but beautifully written. Stories were very well done.
