After China adopted the policy of reform and opened up to the outside world in the early 1980s, large numbers of Chinese went abroad and settled in the United States, a paradise they had dreamed of to go to. As the flow of migrants remains stable, the Chinese-American communities in different cities continue to adapt to the challenges that accompany with a developing and diverse culture. In Chinatown Gun, first-time author Kun Lee relates stories of new Chinese immigrants living in New York.

This novel speaks of several new immigrant families. Chinatown was chosen by most of these new immigrants as their settlement, where they live and work. Each of them had different experiences in China’s mainland. After coming to the United States, in order to realize that “American Dream,” many of them worked hard day and night, full of entrepreneurial spirit, and some started their own business from scratch. They wanted to train their children to become useful people, enduring all kinds of hardships, placing hopes on them. Chinatown Gun allows the readers to find other intriguing descriptions about what happened to the new immigrants—the miseries of the stowaways, human trafficking and smuggling conducted by illegal organizations, blackmail and extortion by gangsters, and brutal and bloody fights and killings between underworld factions and so on.

In Chinatown Gun, Lee has woven a thought-provoking book packed with stories that are vividly depicted, intricately plotted, and sometimes breathtaking. This novel offers to its readers a glimpse into the life of the immigrants who experience the odds and ends of life in order to survive in a country they call their new home—working hard for their dreams and embracing the true meaning of freedom.
