Yep compares his life to a jigsaw puzzle and describes the process of growth and maturation as a search for all the pieces--some sought out intentionally, others found by serendipity but recognized at the moment of discovery as pieces of the puzzle. The absorbing autobiographical narrative introduces facts about this highly-regarded author's San Francisco childhood and Chinese-American heritage to readers who already know some of his many novels, including CHILD OF THE OWL (Harper, 1975) and DRAGONWINGS (Harper, 1977). (Ages 9-14)
