Abstract

The novella White Anemone presents a modern Chinese American story grounded in personal recollections, historical accounts, and cultural mythologies. It is a fragmented narrative that demonstrates the correlation between memory and desire, tracing a young woman's journey to adulthood and self-realization through trials of love, friendship, and family. The story is set in the early 2000's New York City Chinatown and depicts the diversity and socio-economic struggles of working-class Chinese immigrants in 21st-century America.
