Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Nhi T. Lieu insightfully demonstrates how important popular culture is to the self-fasionioning of Vietnamese Americans. Her groundbreaking book validates what many Vietnamese Americans demonstrate in their everyday lives: that the pursuit of leisure and the rituals of entertainment are as crucial to community formation as political advancement and economic empowerment." —Viet Thanh Nguyen, author of Race and Resistance: Literature and Politics in Asian America
