A superior man by Paul Yee( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Yee's first novel for adults is an historical account of a Chinese man on a journey to find the mother of his son.

Yang Hok is not an easy man to like, but through the blood and sweat of his experience, he aspires to become the superior man he knows he should be
