Book: Eddie Huang «Fresh Off the Boat»

Fresh Off the Boat

Assimilating ain't easy. Eddie Huang was raised by a wild family of FOB ( "fresh off the boat" ) immigrants--his father a cocksure restaurateur with a dark past back in Taiwan, his mother a fierce protector and constant threat. This is the story of a Chinese-American kid growing up in Orlando, FL, trying to find himself, ten thousand miles from his legacy and anchored only by his conflicted love for his family, hip hop culture, and his passion for food. Funny, moving, and stylistically inventive, Fresh Off the Boat is more than a radical reimagining of the immigrant memoir--it's the exhilarating story of ever American outsider who finds his destiny in the margins.
