The novel opens with the chapter Jing-Mei Woo. The mood is reflective as Jing-mei Woo is remembering her mother who died of a brain aneurism. Still, there is a clinical sense to the mood. She speaks about how her mother died in a matter of fact way and how she is meant to replace her at the Mah Jong table.
