China Dolls by Michelle Yu and Blossom Kan [in Bloomsbury Review]

China DollsThis Chinese American installment of the Sex in the City-genre features three 20-something childhood best friends, each pursuing her own brand of happiness in Manhattan. While it starts off with a rather cringe-inducing visit to a Chinatown fortune teller at the demand of one of the overbearing mothers wishing too soon for grandchildren, the book’s breezy chatty style offers entertaining glimpses into the lives of three driven women, each working in the male-dominated arenas of sports casting, law, and Wall Street.
