Have you ever wondered:

  • Why Asians love "Hello Kitty"?
  • What the tattooed Chinese characters really say?
  • How to achieve feng shui for optimum make-out sessions?
  • Where Asian cuties meet the white guys who love them?

Then you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll realize this book is better than a Broadway production of Cats when you read scenes that include:

  • twenty-something Lindsey Owyang mastering the intricacies of office voicemail and fax dialing
  • an authentic Chinese banquet where Number One Son shows off his language skills by speaking "Chinglish"
  • dating disasters with grandsons of Grandma's mahjong partners
  • the discovery that the real China looks nothing like the pavilion at Disney World
  • karaoke

And all the while Lindsey is falling in lust with the "white devil" in her politically correct office. But will Grandma's stinky Chinese ointments send him running? Or will Lindsey realize that the path to true love lies somewhere between the dim sum and the pepperoni pizza?

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from KWK's Most Valuable Point: The Hoarders of All Things Asian Funny and generally appealing to many who would see themselves in Lindsay's shoes, this book is mainly valuable for one thing: For its biting, frighteningly accurate commentary on the "greige" men whom Lindsay calls "The Hoarders of All Things Asian." Kudos to Kim Wong Keltner for giving Asian-American literature (and chicklit, too) an interesting, valuable boost.

Editorial Reviews

“In her funny, touching novel, Kim Wong Keltner has created a sumptuous Chinese banquet. A feast of perfectly blended flavors--hot, spicy, sweet and sour. The minute you’ve finished, you’ll want to devour it all over again!” (Carole Matthews, author of Bare Necessity)
