Seven books to celebrate the Year of the Sheep

At B & N Reads Ginni Chen tagged seven books to celebrate the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Sheep, including:
The Woman Warrior, by Maxine Hong Kingston

No exploration of the Chinese immigrant experience in America is complete without Kingston’s critically acclaimed The Woman Warrior. Part autobiography, part collection of Chinese folk tales, this book explores a Chinese American woman’s navigation of life in 20th-century America and the age-old stories of her roots.
Read about the other entries on the list.

The Woman Warrior is among Eva Hoffman's top five striking memoirs and Julia Alvarez's five most important books.
