Reviews
"Eric Liu has written a powerful memoir, a memoir that renders the Asian American experience with a depth and a passion reminiscent of Richard Wright's Black Boy. It is a major contribution to the literature that defines what it means to be an American."
--Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

"A unique-and uniquely American-memoir, suffused with smarts, elegance, and warmth."
--Time

"More than a reminiscence of growing up Asian in America, it is an homage to Liu's Chineseness, and to America."
--Los Angeles Times

"Wonderfully spirited. . . . Remarkable in its adamant refusal to buy into the party line of identity politics . . . Liu is fair to all sides of any issues he discusses."
--The New York Times Book Review
