"Curtis Chin's movable feast of a memoir dishes out everything you might want in a literary meal -- savory reflections of our recent history, the sour-sweet tang of adolescent nostalgia, a little sauce, a lot of heart -- and yes, plenty of hot tea. The real magic is in how a book that's so fulfilling still leaves you hungry for more."

--Jeff Yang, New York Times bestselling author of THE GOLDEN SCREEN and RISE: A Pop History of Asian America from the 90s to Now
