Mrs. Spring Fragrance (1912), Paperback / softback Book

Mrs. Spring Fragrance (1912) Paperback / softback


One of the first works of fiction in English by an Asian North American, Mrs. Spring Fragrance presents a complex and sympathetic picture of life in American Chinese communities in the early twentieth century.

Far's seemingly simple stories of family life reveal the tensions created by cultural assimilation.

Rather than embracing any particular identity, the stories show a cosmopolitan sensibility that embraces "the motley throng of all nationalities" in the streets of San Francisco's Chinatown.
