Caught this linkdown at AAPress and wanted to post up a quick snippet.

In her new book, “It’s a Long Way from China to Hollywood”, Grace F. Yang recounts the story of her struggle to acclimate to the peculiarities of American society while trying to help her daughter break into the entertainment industry. Yang, raised in communist China, moved to Houston with her job and brought over her daughter Yvonne and husband Lu for a better life. Soon, Yang moved again: This time, to Los Angeles when Yvonne expressed interest in breaking into the entertainment industry.
