[Eddie Huang] -- The author is the thirty-year-old proprietor of Baohaus, the hot East Village hangout where.
The beginning is all about his childhood friends and the fights they got into in Florida. The second half turns into a foodie memoir with incredibly detailed descriptions of the food served in his restaurant. There are moments of sincerity and insightfulness in this book, but not nearly enough. Fresh Off the Boat premieres on Feb. Eddie Huang is a is a renaissance man with a string of careers: His raw, funny and sometimes extremely profane memoir, Fresh Off the Boat, came out two years ago.
It's a brutally honest story about his life as an Asian-American kid, reconciling two cultures.
This is an interesting story about a young man whose parents came from China, and became, through hard work, successful restaurant owners. Their son, though, is another story.
He gets into nothing but trouble in school, feeling disenfranchised by The American Dream even though his parents are living proof of that dream, and he benefitted from it at all times.
He goes through many tribulations of his own devices; graduates from law school only to become, like his father, a restaurant owner. His love of food is apparent; his love of minor criminal activity is also. What undoes him is his love of street slang which is inappropriately funny; many of us have met that person from another language who has picked up so much American slang that they become almost completely impossible to understand, and this guy is him!

He is really focused on being COOL, which is hilarious in anyone over 18, and he is still carrying this banner into his 30's! The way this story is written will make it a classic many years from now, as an archaic example of early 's slang, which, I suppose, makes this book worth reading?
I really enjoyed reading about Huang's experiences as an Asian American, his critical comments about racism, his voice, which ranges from academic to street. I was hoping for more of a food memoir than a coming-of-age memoir, but it was still a fun ride.
I was a Chinese-American kid raised by hip-hop and basketball with screaming, yelling, abusive parents in the background. If that makes me a rotten banana, well, tell it like it is. Everything my parents did to me and their parents did to them was justified under the banner of Tradition, Family, and Culture.
My mom always wanted to send food back. Everything on the side, some things hot, some things cold, no MSG, less oil, more chilis, oh, and some vinegar please. I spent the first five years of my life handcuffed to a playpen in the middle of this mini-mall furniture-store office. Before I even knew about guns, I was trying to shoot myself.
