What People are saying about this

Lamar Herrin
"POTATO QUEEN is a novel about East and West, immigration, homecoming and homeleaving, an odyssey in quest of the true sexual self. But most of all, in a world of canned culture and programmed tastes, it is novel about keeping the imagination alive, an accomplishment all readers can celebrate thanks to this remarkable debut by Rafaelito Sy."
author of THE LIES BOYS TELL
Dave Benbow
"POTATO QUEEN is a wonderfully lyrical tale filled with detailed imagery and spot-on glimpses of realistic relationships. Throughout, there is a palpable, yet optimistic, longing for love. As I read it, I kept thinking, "That has happened to me!" (I also was thinking "Men are dogs," but that�s another story for another time, or for my therapist). POTATO QUEEN is, quite simply, enjoyable and honest from cover to cover."
author of DAYTIME DRAMA and MALE MODEL
RuPaul
"Very funny! It's what Desperate Housewives would be if it were set in The Castro."
William Jack Sibley
"Rafaelito Sy confidently and effectively severs the hinges on Asian stereotypes, sexual confessions and cultural platitudes. A rich, compelling and incisive story."
author ANY KIND OF LUCK
Alison Lurie
"Rafaelito Sy writes about a world of loyal friendship, disloyal love, and racial tension and obsession with unusual honesty, intensity, and style."
Pulitzer Prize winning author of FOREIGN AFFAIRS and FAMILIAR SPIRITS
