Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. To participate, you're supposed to share two teaser sentences from a random page in the book you're currently reading.

Here's my teaser for this week:
We Chinese are not stupid. We know that most of the Englishmen here live in a way they could never afford in their own country, and they're living here like kings because their money happens to buy a lot more of our labor than our own money does. So they think they're the lords here and we're the serfs.

~ page 129 of The Piano Teacher by Janice Y. K. Lee
