Publisher Description

Winner of the 1997 Howard O’Hagan
Short Fiction Award!


“In the Diamond, at the end of
a long green vinyl aisle between two booths of chrome, Naugahyde, and Formica,
are two large swinging wooden doors, each with a round hatch of face-sized
window. Those kitchen doors can be kicked with such a slap they’re heard all
the way up to the soda fountain.”

This story of family and
identity, migration and integration, culture and self-discovery is told through
family history, memory, and the occasional
recipe.

Diamond Grill is a rich banquet
where Salisbury steak shares a menu with chicken fried rice, and bird’s nest
soup sets the stage for Christmas plum pudding; where racism simmers behind the
shiny clean surface of the action in the cafe.

An exciting
new edition of Fred Wah’s best-selling bio-fiction, on the 10th anniversary of
its original publication, with an all new afterword by the author and the same
pagination as the original publication.
