Paper Son: One Man’s Story by Tung Pok Chin with Winifred Chin [in aMagazine: Inside Asian America]

Paper SonA rare first-person account of an immigrant’s journey to America during the period of Chinese Exclusion. The memoir, written with his daughter, covers over a half century of Chin’s life from his entry into his adopted country with false papers in 1934 at age 19 through the fear-filled challenges he faced as a Chinese American during the McCarthy era, to his accomplishments as a self-taught poet, the family he raised, and the community he struggled to form around him.
