Judy Fong Bates’ MIDNIGHT AT THE DRAGON CAFÉ is a captivating novel that follows the story of a Chinese immigrant family in Canada. Through the eyes of the protagonist, Mei-Ling, we experience the struggles and joys of life in a foreign land. The characters are wonderfully drawn and the story is full of heart and emotion. Counterpoint’s paperback edition of this book is a great value at $14.95. I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy stories about family, culture, and identity.
