Yellow: Stories by Don Lee

"Elegant and engrossing...[an] unusually complete portrait of contemporary Asian America."—Los Angeles Times..."A gem....Lee has captured this truth beautifully, wisely, and with winning economy."—Cleveland Plain Dealer
As the Los Angeles Times noted in its profile of the author, "few writers have mined the [genre of ethnic literature] as shrewdly or transcended its limits quite so stunningly as Don Lee." Harking "back to the timeless concerns of Chekhov: fate, chance, the mystery of the human heart" (Stuart Dybek), these interconnected stories "are utterly contemporary,...but grounded in the depth of beautiful prose and intriguing storylines" (Asian Week). They paint a novelistic portrait of the fictional town of Rosarita Bay, California, and a diverse cast of complex and moving characters. "Nothing short of wonderful...surprising and wild with life" (Robert Boswell), Yellow "proves that wondering about whether you're a real American is as American as a big bowl of kimchi" (New York Times Book Review).

a really good fast read! each story was unique but connected in some way or another. though i couldnt really see how each story had something to do with being 'yellow' except for the last 3. but besides that really good!

I have read this book multiple times...and every time I feel something different. True his writing isn't sophisticated but he accurately depicts the dilemmas I've been in, went through, struggling to figure out what I am in this country where mix of various ethnicities co-exist. I've read this book in High School, wrote a letter to the author, and to my surprise he responded to me, answering my questions in detail. I love how I can relate to every single one of the protagomists thought process too. You will notice in the end, all different characters from each chapter are all connected somehow. His recent novel 'Country of Origin' is a definite 5 star book in terms of portraying the conflict between Koreans and Japanese and the underlying reason behind it. Not many Korean-Americans are aware of it, and I was very surprised to see that topic discussed. All in all- highly recommended.

Yellow puts into writing the modern plights of Asian-Americans. Providing enough background to not leave non-Asian readers in the dark but not too much to read like a history book, Don Lee's stories have something for everyone.
