Description

Saved as Draft: Stories of Self-Discovery Through Letters & Notes is N.D. Chan's brave and searing collection of observations about the shifting world she inhabits as a Chinese American woman. Born in Chinatown, New York, Chan was sent to China after her father was murdered in a random street shooting. She lived with her grandparents in Guangzhou, until her mother sent for them after marrying a dentist and becoming a wealthy and successful businesswoman. Life should have been happy in the privileged enclave of Long Island, but with a distant mother and a feeling that she no longer belonged, Chan began to look for acceptance elsewhere-the relationships she shared with her family, her friends, her lovers.

Saved as Draft is that search for a sense of "rightness" and a place called home.

"The author's personal story is compelling, and her bold choice of presentation smartly captures the meagerness of the answers life offers and the challenge of getting them down on paper before they dissolve." - Kirkus Reviews...
