In Days Gone By, Volume 2: A Meeting of East and West, Christine Wu Ramsay continues the personal story of her life in an ever-widening world – as East meets West. The story is told with warmth, insight and her characteristic sense of humour. Presented with the realities of Western customs and values, she sets these against her changing perceptions of the traditions and philosophies of a matriarchal and extended Chinese family living in Singapore. Contrasts between East and West are highlighted when she takes a Western husband and they have two Eurasian children. Photographs spanning a century, complement the author’s engaging and revealing description of studying, working and living in Asia, Australia, England and America from 1958 to 1983.
