    Revenge of the Mooncake Vixen A Novel review ↠ 104 Revenge of the Mooncake Vixen A NovelHighly original and inventive manifesto in 41 tales with a heavily feminist bent The tales are drawn from Buddhist texts and a platter of Chinese folklore updated for a modern audience ie fellatio and naughty bitsTone wise the stories present a gritty or whimsical look at first generation Chinese immigrant life a stylised satire of over sexed second generation teenage life and a fantastical world of vaginas with teeth fox metamorphoses and ninja grandmas Very funny and refreshing

    Revenge of the Mooncake Vixen A Novel review ↠ 104 Revenge of the Mooncake Vixen A NovelI don't usually review on this site because there's already such a plethora of smart involved reviewers But the showing for this particular book is SHAMEFUL and it's one of my favorites So here's what I wrote about it once upon a time Moon grew up lost weight and became a famous singer which proves that there is no justice in the universe or that indeed there is justice Your interpretation of the denouement mostly depends on your race creed hair color social and economic class and political proclivities whether or not you are a revisionist feminist and have a habit of cheering for the underdog What is the moral of the story Well it's a tale of revenge obviously written from the Chinese American girl's

    Revenge of the Mooncake Vixen A Novel review ↠ 104 Revenge of the Mooncake Vixen A NovelRaucous bawdy political without apologies This book is a mosaic of a novel about twin Chinese American sisters and their cleaver wielding grandmother with pointed updates of classical Chinese writings I haven't found a book which so deftly pushed my buttons in a while — vengeful female ghosts folklore adaptations surprise martial arts moves and a cheerful disregard for men's feelings and thoughts My one small critiue is that some of the politicsreferences read as a tiny bit dated; albeit in our new political era they might not be so dated any I highly highly recommend it I also met Marilyn Chin last week and she is uite possibly the coolest person I've ever met At her reading she made all the undergrads blush
