Thoughts: Not only is this a graphic novel made of a mix of illustrations and actual pictures, it is also both a biography and a memoir.  Fleming details her search for the history of her famous great-grandfather, Long Tack Sam, the Chinese magician known all over the world during vaudeville days.  A very interesting and informative read.

Rating: 5 stars
