Synopsis

Laurence Yep always felt like an outsider. His parents were Chinese immigrants who insisted on speaking English at home. He grew up in an African-American neighborhood and attended a Catholic high school in San Francisco's Chinatown. When he arrived at college, he found himself to be one of the few Asian faces on campus. Slowly, Yep learned about the history and culture of the Chinese people and realized that their story had not been fully told in American literature - an oversight he sought to correct in his "Golden Mountain Chronicles" series. Also known for his science fiction and fantasy stories, Yep has written mysteries and novels about troubled young people. This insightful new biography examines the life of this beloved author whose timeless books for young people speak profoundly to those who know what it feels like to be an outsider.
