Description:

This essay will explore these two books MacLeod's "No Great Mischief" and Choy's "Paper Shadows: A Chinatown Childhood" in order to show how the past is represented as a painful and ghostly reality, which can also bring restoration for the characters that seek it. In this sense, part of accessing the past and allowing it to be a helpful influence is coming to terms with its shadows and its ghosts.
