American Knees

By: Shawn Wong
Recommended for grade(s): College Plus

“American Knees (a takeoff on the old schoolyard song, ‘Chinese, Japanese, dirty knees. . .’) is the story of how Raymond Ding, a politically correct man with a politically incorrect sense of humor, falls into, and out of, love with newspaper photographer Aurora Crane. As Raymond and Aurora’s story unfolds, Wong crafts some wonderfully telling and funny scenes of social relations in multicultural America.” -Seattle Weekly –From University of Washington Press
