Eating Bitter, a Chinese American Saga is a richly textured biography charting the long lives of Paul and Sonia Ho. It is about survival of the Sino-Japanese War, the Japanese occupation of Taiwan, the Communist Revolution and the prejudices the family encountered as immigrants to the United States. It is about memory - and conflicting memories. Eating Bitter is, above all, an American success story. It was Paul and Sonia’s eldest son, David, whose groundbreaking work on AIDS made him Time Magazine’s Person of the Year in 1996 and, a few years later, won him the Presidential Citizens Medal.
