产品描述

“Goong-Goong” is a remarkable journey of discovery. Patrizia Chen, who grew up with all the traditions of an Italian family, married into a Chinese family in the 1980s. At once she was fascinated and puzzled by the myriad photographs of old Shanghai: the elegant weddings, exclusive club-like settings, sumptuous homes, and expensive cars. Inquisitive, she fielded questions, yet… no one knew about the stories. Only her father-in-law, shipping magnate Chie Yuan Chen (or Goong-Goong, as she always respectfully referred to him) was the key to unlocking the family history. Rebuffed at first; in the years to come, the once prickly relationship between inquisitive Patrizia and reserved Goong-Goong warmed to become one of profound joy and deep meaning; Patrizia knew that she had to write the story of this remarkable man and the family that took her in with open arms; about exotic places, traditions, the fascinating people, anecdotes and stories—the stuff of novels—that proved to be real once she began to study the history of the Chen family and the unique meeting of East and West. In “Goong-Goong” Patrizia Chen shows how families may change but can still preserve their traditions. It is a unique book which represents a fascinating cultural bridge between two civilizations and spanning two centuries.
