The Woman Warrior -- Memoirs of a girlhood among ghosts Author:Maxine Hong Kingston Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Best Non-Fiction Book of 1976.
"As an account of growing up female and Chinese-American in California ... it is anti-nostalgic; it burns the fat right out of the mind. As a dream -- of the 'female avenger' -- it is dizzying, elemental, a poem turned into a sword." - John Leonard, The New York Times
