Revenge of the Mooncake Vixen by Marilyn Chin
A novel in short stories, this book follows the lives of Mei Ling and Moonie, identical (and comically opposite in nature) twins. Chin researched Chinese women's revenge stories for this book and the combination of old fables with what it's like to be a Chinese-American today are brilliant.
