Chinatown noir

Saturday, November 15th, 2008

Back in October, Steven Kurutz of the Times interviewed writer Henry Chang, who was born and raised in Chinatown, about his detective novels Chinatown Beat and Year of the Dog. This is a great opportunity to get a peek inside a Chinatown that’s not open to tourists, to say the least. “I tried to make the atmosphere as real as possible,” Chang says.

Chang will read from Year of the Dog, published this month by Soho Press, at 7 pm Thursday, Nov. 20, at the Museum of Chinese in America, 70 Mulberry St, 2nd floor. Free.
