FINDING MR. WONG
By Susan Crean
Susan Crean’s memoir Finding Mr. Wong chronicles her effort to piece together the life of the man she knew as Mr. Wong, cook and housekeeper to her Irish-Canadian family. A Chinese head tax payer hired by Crean’s grandfather in 1928, Wong Dong Wong remained on the job following Gordon Crean’s death in 1947. The book is an important contribution to a growing body of writings that illuminate the lives of people silenced or otherwise negated by myopic history.
