Monkey Hunting


Cristina Garcia traces the treacherous path of immigration and assimilation that faced the Chinese who were enslaved and brought to Cuba in the 19th century. Chen Pan is one such Chinese man, who escapes from slavery and makes a prosperous career in Havana as a free man running a well-regarded second-hand store. The fates of his children and grandchildren are more problematic. Chen Fang, his granddaughter, is raised in China as a boy, so that her father, who returned to Cuba before she was born, will send money for her schooling; she dies in Mao Zedong's prisons. Domingo Chen, his great-grandson, applies for American citizenship when Castro comes to power, only to be caught up in Vietnam. This is a thrilling and unusual family saga. Hide synopsis
