Reviews

Praise for "Fresh Off the Boat"

"Mercilessly funny and provocative, "Fresh Off the Boat "is also a serious piece of work--and an important one. Eddie Huang is hunting nothing less than Big Game here--a question, a conversation, an argument: Who "are "we? If somebody's going to put a thumb in your eye, it should probably be Eddie Huang. He does everything with style."--Anthony Bourdain

"Brash, leading-edge, and unapologetically hip, Huang reconfigures the popular foodie memoir into something worthwhile and very memorable."--"Publishers Weekly "(starred review)
Praise for "Fresh Off the Boat"

"Brash and funny . . . outrageous, courageous, moving, ironic and true."--"New York Times Book Review"

"Mercilessly funny and provocative, "Fresh Off the Boat "is also a serious piece of work. Eddie Huang is hunting nothing less than Big Game here. He does everything with style."--Anthony Bourdain

"Bawdy and frequently hilarious . . . a surprisingly sophisticated memoir about race and assimilation in America . . . as much James Baldwin and Jay-Z as Amy Tan . . . rowdy [and] vital . . . It's a book about fitting in by not fitting in at all."--Dwight Garner, "The""New York Times"
" "
"Uproariously funny . . . emotionally honest."--"Chicago Tribune"

"Huang is a fearless raconteur. [His] writing is at once hilarious and provocative; his incisive wit pulls through like a perfect plate of dan dan noodles."--"Interview"

"Although writing a memoir is an audacious act for a thirty-year-old, it is not nearly as audacious as some of the things Huang did and survived even earlier. . . . Whatever he ends up doing, you can be sure it won't look or sound like anything that's come before. A single, kinetic passage from "Fresh Off the Boat" . . . is all you need to get that straight.""--Bookforum"
