City girls indeed! A determined, spunky, hard-working, fun-loving group of women who endure hardship but also just wanted to have fun.

A wonderful recovery of history!
Judy Yung, author of Unbound Feet: A Social History of Chinese Women in San Francisco
City Girls provides a vibrant, complex, and insider's view of Nisei women's social world before and after wartime incarceration and resettlement.

It is historical scholarship and feminist writing at its best.
