Item description for Gweilo Moments: Notes From Hong Kong on Motherhood, Adoption, Mid-Life and Cats by Robin Minietta...

How does one go about opening one's heart to an abused six-year old boy who speaks not one word of English? What do menopause and kudzu have in common? Where do we turn for that extra dose of courage, or an extra dollop of humor to help us through the day? 'Gweilo Moments', a collection of interlocking essays by Robin Minietta, is a thoughtful -- and, provocative -- meditation on lives that unfold against the backdrop of Hong Kong. Both poignant and laugh-out-loud funny, Minietta's debut book showcases a strong, clear intelligent woman's voice. "... heartwrenchingly real ... Minietta earns the reader's full attention and grips it until the last page." -- South China Morning Post; "East and West not so much clash as confusingly bump into each other ... Searingly honest and personal." -- BC Magazine

Reviews - What do customers think about Gweilo Moments: Notes From Hong Kong on Motherhood, Adoption, Mid-Life and Cats?

Wonderful & Heartfelt Collection of Stories  Feb 16, 2006
Robin Minietta writes exquisitely and I was touched by her searing honesty and candor in describing her trials and tribulations in trying to conceive, facing menopause, losing a parent, and living in an adopted land. She brings a keen journalistic eye for detail to her tales of expatriate living in Hong Kong, and conveys a joy for life and adventure. Above all, her stories of love for her children will resonate with parents everywhere.
Gweilo Moments  Jul 14, 2005
Wow! A wonderful, heartfelt book about real life experiences. Robin Minietta is a true writer, who grabs you and keeps you reading. From her change at 10, to her realalistic views of adoption, to her families love (and hardships). I laughed and cried, a lot! I can't wait for her next novel. I am so impressed with this author...bravo!
