    Poulet du Général Tso, Fortune Cookie Chronicles Reviewed in French

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | May 11, 2010

    The Fortune Cookie Chronicles has now been reviewed in French on Rue89, a cross between HuffPo and Politico in France, by Guillemette Faure, who was a reporter in New York. Guillemette Faure noted it got 2,000 views in 40 minutes, which is remarkable for a foreign book review.

    The Google Translate from French to English is remarkable. She quotes my book in French and Google translate it back as elegantly as I first wrote it. It is much better than from Chinese to English.

    I did travel to France for my book to visit the David restaurant, and wandered around the French Chinatown (or Quartier Chinois), so it’s interesting to see the commenters mention Tang Frères. Most of the French Chinese are from Wenzhou.
