    I like Atom’s positive attitude and smart, thoughtful prose. Red Envelope sounds like a charming novel. Congratulations, Atom and Jocelyn, on an excellent interview.

    Hmmm. I love the IDEA behind this quote of Adam’s: “being resolute sets the boundary for both the individual and the family, to push the issue of acceptance.”

    But the reality of being able to change one’s Chinese-American in-laws, even when resolute? I am not entirely sure this is possible. I keep trying, though.

    Maybe it’s easier when one is the beloved son, rather than the servant/ daughter-in-law.
