Taichi by Marc Meyer
T’ai Chi Grandmaster Kuo Yun San leaves mainland China for what he thinks is the last time, creating a new life for himself,opening a T’ai Chi school in New York City and reconnecting with his Asian American family in Chinatown. He was once rumored to have been the bodyguard of Madame Chiang Kai Shek.
Nevertheless, the city of New York in the 1960’s is a very different place from the one he visited in past decades and he’s surprised by the level of social inrest and violence he encounters. The Master trades one Cultural Revolution for another, struggling to adapt to a new homeland in which societal changes are taking place.
