'Oh Lord! Here come the Double Happiness Twins . . .'The Double Happiness Twins are Moonie and Mei Ling. The Double Happiness is the Chinese restaurant in California where they help out their meat-cleaver-wielding grandmother - when they're not causing uproar and mayhem. And Revenge of the Mooncake Vixen is the story of the sisters, their Grandma, a lot of animals and the topsy-turvy, surreal experience of being a pair of strangers in a very, very strange land indeed.

An uproarious debut that lays bare the complicated generational relationships of Chinese American women. Raucous twin sisters Moonie and Mei Ling Wong are known as the “double happiness” Chinese food delivery girls. Each day they load up a “crappy donkey-van” and deliver Americanized (“bad”) Chinese food to homes throughout their southern California neighborhood. United in their desire to blossom into somebodies, the Wong girls fearlessly assert their intellect and sexuality, even as they come of age under the care of their dominating, cleaver-wielding grandmother from Hong Kong. They transform themselves from food delivery girls into accomplished women, but along the way they wrestle with the influence and continuity of their Chinese heritage. Marilyn Chin’s prose waxes and wanes between satire and metaphorical lyric, referencing classical Chinese tales and ghost stories that are at turns sensual, lurid, hilarious, shocking, and surreal.
