Overview

In The Wang: The Big One, heralded by the Colorado Daily as a book that "should be handed out to every college graduate with worthless degrees," Stan Yan introduces us to our hapless protagonist, Eugene Wang and the dysfunctional relationships in his lonely life.

This coming of age story recounts Eugene's transition from college to the corrupt world of unscrupulous sales people, con artists, and cults. Meanwhile, he attempts to deal with the loss of his girlfriend... to his mom. As the two women in his life discover themselves, and each other, Eugene searches for his identity, uncovering secrets of our corrupt world along the way, with his strange new friend, Sue Anne Potts.

As successful as The Big One was a combining what Scott Chon (Arbiter of Good Taste, Sequart.com) calls, "An Asian-American sex comedy" with "a laugh-out-loud tragedy," Yan feels Who's Your Daddy" one-ups its predecessor by weaving into the mix, "the best murder mystery I've ever written."

Editorial Reviews

"As outrageous as his adventures may seem, we have all heard anecdotes or even experienced aspects of Wang's tale that make him easy to relate to. The other extremity of Yan's humor comes in the form of Wang's imagination. His idle fantasies and nightmares are the true hypothetical questions we all experience when under duress. Yan masterfully depicts the human psyche (and the sometimes asinine way we obsess over things). Yan's full use of humor also proves delightful as he crams humor into names (such as Dot Kamm and Ernest Mann), requiring thorough examination of many panels to pick up on all the hidden jokes.... With the loose outline of a plot, one can follow Wang as he stumbles into the real world while laughing uproariously at the crazy predicaments he lands himself in. Reader be warned, The Wang will make you laugh if you let your guard down."
