This story of family and identity, migration and integration, culture and self-discovery is told through family history, memory, and the occasional recipe. Diamond Grill is a rich banquet where Salisbury steak shares a menu with chicken fried rice, and birds nest soup sets the stage for Christmas plum pudding; where racism simmers behind the shiny clean surface of the action in the cafe. An exciting new edition of Fred Wah's best-selling bio-fiction, on the 10th anniversary of its original publication, with an all new Afterword by the author and the same pagination as the original publication. This is the third title in NeWest's Landmark Editions series. 'Landmark Editions' are previously published works by established and recognised western Canadian authors that will enjoy new life in this series. Winner of the Howard OHagan Award for the Best Collection of Short Fiction 1997.
