Confucius Says, Call Your Mother: Author Layne Wong Releases 1st Multicultural Romance Novel, Shanghai Love

LOS ANGELES, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bringing a little yin and yang to your oy vey, Layne Wong's Shanghai Love is a gripping novel about an unlikely love story between Peilin, a beautiful Chinese herbalist and Henri, a Jewish refugee in Shanghai, China during World War II.


Layne's story and the story of her characters, tells the tale of the historical social stigma that accompa­nied mixed marriages in the 20's and surprisingly continues today.  In 1922, American Caucasians were punished for marrying immigrants of Chinese descent under the Racial Integrity Act.  Opposition to interracial marriage was so severe that those who broke this law had their citizenship revoked.  It wasn't until the late 1967 that this law was repealed by the Supreme Court and the broke down and marriage views began to change.

Ms. Wong's novel, Shanghai Love, honors the history of this strife and is a beautifully paralleled reflection of her own struggle through her interracial marriage, bridging the seemingly unconquerable gap through the stories of great love.  Director, Actor and Producer Henry Winkler says, "Two cultures collide in a romantic brew of herbs and heart. Layne Wong creates a compelling tale."

So when you're sitting at your Seder this Passover, remember that love conquers all, and don't forget to pass the matzo. 


Layne Wong is a novelist and advocate who writes her characters through her own multi-cultural lens.  Her perspective, based on her personal love story, takes into consideration influences that encompass culture, history and societal effects that are current and relevant and that impact all of humanity. Layne's a native Californian. She graduated from UCLA with a degree in English Literature. She has written for TV and entertainment. She is of Chinese heritage, converted to Judaism in 2001, and married a Jewish man. More information can be found at
