The first sixteen years of his life had been colorful and complicated. There had been easy times, but there were difficult ones as well, but all were integral stages in life. Now, author Kevin Y. Lu shares the insights to his life as an American Born Chinese in his newly published memoir, ABC. In eleven briefly written vignettes, the author encapsulated the interesting moments of his first sixteen years. Engaging, thoughtful, and candid, these quick glimpses of his life allow readers to also see the momentous milestones that led to his maturation. He describes how depressed he was in "Broke at Age Three" when his mother taught him the value and importance of money; how he felt after "Cutting risk" when his mother encouraged him, only six years old at that time, to use real cooking knives instead of just plastic knives; how dejected he was when his mother confiscated his Gameboy because he was unintentionally manipulating her trust; how wronged he felt when his teacher didn't appreciate his cleverly written "Trump's Play"; and how prescient he was when pondering the significance of awards; and how incorrect his original thoughts were about the divine power teachers have over their students. He turns to a more serious tone as he relates his work experience in the business world through real estate; and finally his international job experience which allowed him to understand the reasons for the differences between America's and Australia's economy. These and more await readers as they get to know the author through the pages of ABC. From simple childhood adventures to involvement in serious business, the life of this Asian American has been far more complex than even he had thought.

Anthony C. Yu’s translation of The Journey to the West,initially published in 1983, introduced English-speaking audiences to the classic Chinese novel in its entirety for the first time. Written in the sixteenth century, The Journey to the West tells the story of the fourteen-year pilgrimage of the monk Xuanzang, one of China’s most famous religious heroes, and his three supernatural disciples, in search of Buddhist scriptures. Throughout his journey, Xuanzang fights demons who wish to eat him, communes with spirits, and traverses a land riddled with a multitude of obstacles, both real and fantastical. An adventure rich with danger and excitement, this seminal work of the Chinese literary canonis by turns allegory, satire, and fantasy. With over a hundred chapters written in both prose and poetry, The Journey to the West has always been a complicated and difficult text to render in English while preserving the lyricism of its language and the content of its plot. But Yu has successfully taken on the task, and in this new edition he has made his translations even more accurate and accessible. The explanatory notes are updated and augmented, and Yu has added new material to his introduction, based on his original research as well as on the newest literary criticism and scholarship on Chinese religious traditions. He has also modernized the transliterations included in each volume, using the now-standard Hanyu Pinyin romanization system. Perhaps most important, Yu has made changes to the translation itself in order to make it as precise as possible. One of the great works of Chinese literature, The Journey to the West is not only invaluable to scholars of Eastern religion and literature, but, in Yu’s elegant rendering, also a delight for any reader.
