About the Author:

Elsie Choy's background spans both America and China, from where her paternal grandparents emigrated to Hawaii in the 1800s. Born in Shanghai, she was raised in both cultures, tutored in the Chinese classics and attended both Chinese and American schools in that city. She worked at the Columbia University on a research project on contemporary cultures under the direction of Ruth Benedict, then Margaret Mead after Benedict's death.
