The Turbulent sea recounts Li's escape to America and the shocking, cruel racism he not only endured by observed nationwide. His fantasy of a fair and free United States is challenged by the behavior of law enforcement, government, and even his college peers whose permissive sexual mores and disregard for outsiders leave young Charles with a heartbreaking feeling of disappointment and loneliness. As in the case of so many immigrants worldwide who are seeking a better life, his myriad challenges includes staying at the top of his college class while struggling with financial hardships. He can't even afford a winter coat in the middle of Maine's brutal snowstorms, and perhaps more heartbreaking, no one seems to notice or care. Growing steadily more involved in the antiwar movement, Li, having suffered in Mao's China, becomes a dissident among his cohorts for holding the view that Mao was the diametrical opposite of a revolutionary hero. Yet, for his pacifist and law-abiding protest activities, Li is persecuted by the American law enforcement and immigration authorities. Li's intellectual and psychological journey at Bowdoin College, Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley, is triumphant as he finds a group of talented friends who provide, at last, an opportunity for the love and care that eluded him for so long. Riveting, witty and illuminating, The Turbulent Sea is also an unconventional history of America's 1960s from the perspective of a brilliant, quintessential outsider.
