fun and sometimes profound arguments as to the influences of Asia/asians on the west - and the perosnal essays are deeply honest and moving. a strong reading that's unique in American literature.

This follow up to Perfume Dreams is more light hearted and edgier and a fun read. Insightful understanding of how the west and the east have not only met but changed one another irrevocably. Fav: teacher's essay and last one, on the lost letters.
