Hypnotic book reads like scattered memories, dreams, random thoughts. A story of a young girl growing up too fast lost in sexual obsession, trying to understand the world she’s trapped in. Mesmerizing, atmospheric and overall unforgettable. Reminiscent of Nabakov, Camus. Very interesting read.

On March 30, 2005, 110 winners were announced in the inter-state Powerball lottery, a statistically improbable number. Of those, 104 second-tier winners had chosen an identical sequence of numbers that was discovered to have come from a fortune cookie. What started out as a simple mission to find the manufacturer became a deeper investigation into the fortune cookie itself, which in turn sparked an investigation on the culture and history of Chinese food in America.
