Publisher Description

From the tranquility of an Oriental monastery to the tumult of the New York Stock exchange, the hero of this amazing novel embarks on a quest for a father, a fortune and the ultimate essence of the universe.   The illegitimate son of a Chinese mother and an American aviator with the Flying Tigers, the hero was reared as an orphan by Taoist monks. When he learns that his father may be a wealthy Wall Street entrepreneur, he feels compelled to go to New York. His efforts to reconcile his two lives-- to find the Tao within the Dow-- make a story rich in character, wit and insight.

WINNER OF THE HOUGHTON MIFFLIN LITERARY FELLOWSHIP AWARD

"This novel, with its glorious style and rich profusion of detail... is a book to be read twice, first to be gulped down in great chunks during sleepless nights; later to be sipped slowly, savoring details, like a well-brewed cup of tea... absorbing and deeply rewarding."
-- The Washington Post
