“Wong Liu Tsong often played hooky from school to see movies at the Nickelodeon.” Lily Wu read her report aloud. “When she grew up, she changed her name to Anna May Wong and overcame many obstacles to become a famous film star.”
Tim Wu rolled his eyes. “If it’s a great Chinese actor you want, write about Jackie Chan.”
“It’s Women’s History Month. Now—one of Anna’s biggest disappointments came in 1935 when Hollywood passed her over for the role a Chinese woman in The Good Earth.”

*Frosted Yellow Willow is the literal translation of Wong Tsiu Tsong.
