Open the fortune cookies and read your future - and your past...
Sarah has nightmares, Huong is threatened, Miki longs to follow her dreams, but she might destroy the dreams of those close to her, Lacey is haunted by memories, Halil's father disappears, the daughter of Ta-wha risks darkness and wild animals for a taste of freedom.
Sometimes funny, sometimes heartachingly sad, in Fortune Cookies Christine Harris gently lifts aside the familiar imagery of places like China, Vietnam, Singapore, Korea, the Philippines, Bali, Australia and allows us to share the reality of lives that are at best only half understood.
