Revenge of the Mooncake Vixen

Subtitle A Manifesto in 41 Tales
By Marilyn Chin
Published by Hamish Hamilton
ISBN 9780241144619
Autumn 2010


The Double Happiness Twins are Moonie and Mei Ling. The Double Happiness is the Chinese restaurant in California where they help out their meat-cleaver-wielding grandmother – when they’re not causing uproar and mayhem. And Revenge of the Mooncake Vixen is the story of the sisters, their Grandma, a lot of animals and the topsy-turvy, surreal experience of being a pair of strangers in a very, very strange land indeed.
