by Tan Prace Collier

Green River, Wyoming is the kind of small town where everyone knows each other. It’s dry and bitterly cold in the winter and everything is how it’s been for decades. Jean and Rod live out their bleak lives day to day frequenting the only restaurant in town, The Chinese Palace. The devastation of their past haunts them every minute of everyday influencing every decision they make. Days before Christmas, an individual from their past returns home after 26 years to flip their world upside-down once again. Chinese Spaghetti explores injustice, remembrance, wrongful incarceration, and the power of a child’s words in the wrong hands.
