All That Matters by Wayson Choy

A new book from Choy is an event. His writing has a quiet integrity and an exquisite grace.

Winner of the 2005 Trillium Book Award, finalist for the 2004 Giller Prize, and long-listed for the 2006 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, All That Matters is the eagerly anticipated sequel to Wayson Choys award-winning first novel, The Jade Peony.

Kiam-Kim is three years old when he arrives by ship at Gold Mountain with his father and his grandmother, Poh-Poh. From his earliest years, Kiam-Kim is deeply conscious of his responsibility to maintain the familys honor and to set an example for his younger siblings. However, his life is increasingly complicated by his burgeoning awareness of the world outside Vancouvers Chinatown. Choy once again accomplishes the extraordinary: blending a haunting evocation of tenacious, ancient traditions with a precise, funny, and very modern coming-of-age story.

What Matters Quotes

The members of my family have driven me crazy, made me laugh, cry, look silly, and feel embarrassed, but most of all they have made me feel loved and accepted. While growing up , I had the opportunity to try on many roles- trouble maker, big brother, antagonizer, role model, loving son, and more. It's amazing when I look back at all the experiences I've had with my family. The common theme has been one of love. It may not have always been expressed in a way I understood or would have asked for, but it was love and it came through and touched my heart. I am grateful for the family I was born into and how we have all developed over time.

Quotes tagged as "what-matters" Showing of Too much of the time, we are blinded by our own pursuits of people to love us, people that don't even matter, while all that time we waste and the people who do love us have to stand on the sidewalk and watch us beg in the streets! It's time to put an end to this. It's time for us to let ourselves be loved.

We love our family because they are who we share the same blood with. Of course, they can anger us and give us the biggest of headaches; but at the end of the day, family is all that matters.
