Yep, Laurence


Laurence Yep, a Newbery Honor Award winner (Dragonwings and Dragon's Gate), has written many books about the Asian-American experience, including Ribbons and The Cook's Family (both Putnam). Mr. Yep based The Amah on the experience of his grandmother, who worked as an amah for an American family. According to his own family stories, his relatives' adjustment to their absent mother was quite difficult. Sparked by his interest in the world of amahs, Mr. Yep also interviewed a number of Chinese amahs, children of the amahs and finally, the people who had been raised by the amahs. The result is a story that shows how the lives of all three parties are forever intertwined. A resident of northern California, Mr. Yep holds a Ph.D in English and is an award-winning playwright.Yep, Laurence is the author of 'Amah' with ISBN 9780698118782 and ISBN 0698118782.
