American Born Chinese (ABC) Baby Boomers who grew up in San Francisco's Chinatown share treasured memories and prized stories about being a part of America's most exotic of ethnic neighborhoods. The anecdotes collected into this book by former Chinatown kid Edmund S. Wong will take readers back to the lively streets and alleyways where he and his contemporaries worked, played and led lives steeped in the vibrant cultures of both old China and the United States during its post World War II wonder years. Readers who know the old Chinatown will be able to revisit all the places that contributed to their growth and formation. Tourists of all ages and from all the world's corners will come to know and understand the true nature of the sights and people that they once only fleetingly met. Readers will feel as if they are, once again, back on Grant Avenue, in Portsmouth Square or at their favorite eatery to see, hear, and taste all that was Chinatown during its golden age. "More Memories of Growing Up in San Francisco's Chinatown" is the companion book of "Memories of Growing Up in San Francisco's Chinatown: From Noodle Rolls to Apple Pie" published in 2018.
