Hakka Soul: Memories, Migrations, and Meals
NUS Press, 2008 - 199 sider
Chin Woon Pings Hakka Soul chronicles the dreams, ambitions and idiosyncrasies of her family. Her stories follow the familys move to the United States and a journey to China to visit her fathers ancestral home. The familys migrations are part of the global diaspora of the Hakkas, known in China as the Guest People. Chins poetically and amusingly rendered accounts of Hakka history, language and mythology derived from research and oral history are a moving tribute to the endurance of her people and their culture, and a paean to the incomparable Hakka cuisine.
