I was disappointed with this book. I was thinking that it may be similar to 'Kim's Convenience' which I really enjoyed. Not so with this one. The author's comments about Edmonton were just as I remembered them way back when, but many of her stories were confusing, as she sometimes didn't explain who she was talking about - just their names, but with no connection info. She seemed to not have her stories in order timewise, so they jumped around. Anyway, I didn't finish the book, I'm sorry to say, as I very seldom don't finish a book, even if I'm not really enjoying it, but I found this one quite boring, unfortunately.

Paper Teeth by Lauralyn Chow is a short story collection featuring a Chinese-Canadian family called the Lees and flits back and forth between the past and now. It’s a beautiful collection, with each story titled after a dish in a Chinese restaurant, Egg Drop Soup, Spicy Beef in Lettuce Wraps, One Thousand Year Old Eggs and so on.

I think if you’re new to short stories and don’t really like how quickly they’re resolved, this one’s for you. You really do get an excellent picture of the Lee family, from so many multiple perspectives and it almost feels more like a family drama than a short story collection.

I adored this.
