Anybody who has ever watched restaurateur Eddie Huang on his food shows or chowed down at his trendy East Village eatery will want to read Fresh Off the Boat, but this memoir deserves a far larger audience than the already gastronomically-converted. Even non-foodies will enjoy Huang's brisk, candid confessions about his sometimes outrageous attempts to assimilate to American ways without losing touch with his parents' Taiwanese roots. Fortunately, his candor is matched by his wit; his fumbling, far-flung quests for identity become a joy ride for readers. Another tasty cross-cultural concoction by Eddie Huang.
