A Visit to Heaven


A Visit to Heaven is a collection of four stories by acclaimed writer Tom Te-Wu Ma. "A Visit to Heaven" is a riveting tale of Tai-lin and his four girlfriends: Pin-pin, who yearns to leave China for America; Ze-chen, a fairy who takes Tai-lin on a trip to Heaven and becomes his first lover; Xin-di, who explains to him the world of ghosts; and Donna Jones, his nurse at the psychiatric facility Tai-lin is sent to when his story of dying and being reincarnated in the recently deceased body of American James W. Cubin is not believed. Donna later becomes Tai-lin's wife and they become parents under a remarkable set of unbelievable but true circumstances. In "Uncle Du" we meet 92-year-old Da-ye, born in a poor farmer's home who became an experienced Chinese soldier, eventually made his way to the U.S. to attend the University of Michigan and later become an American citizen, an accountant and a hotel owner who married his childhood sweetheart Fu-lin. His story is one of perseverance and a steadfast strength of character. You will laugh and cry as Uncle Du's story unfolds and come to admire a man with a dream. "Wallet" shows Mr. Wang, a retired 40-year Chinese government employee that he is not at all like his beloved actor Bruce Lee but is instead a person he never imagined he would become. "Cigarette Butt" pits Tony Chen against the suspicions of his wife Silvia who learns that it is best not to jump to conclusions on the basis of flimsy evidence.
