Fresh Off the Boat Book Description :

NOW AN ORIGINAL SERIES ON ABC • “Just may be the best new comedy of [the year] . . . based on restaurateur Eddie Huang’s memoir of the same name . . . [a] classic fresh-out-of-water comedy.”—People “Bawdy and frequently hilarious . . . a surprisingly sophisticated memoir about race and assimilation in America . . . as much James Baldwin and Jay-Z as Amy Tan . . . rowdy [and] vital . . . It’s a book about fitting in by not fitting in at all.”—Dwight Garner, The New York Times NATIONAL BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY KIRKUS REVIEWS Assimilating ain’t easy. Eddie Huang was raised by a wild family of FOB (“fresh off the boat”) immigrants—his father a cocksure restaurateur with a dark past back in Taiwan, his mother a fierce protector and constant threat. Young Eddie tried his hand at everything mainstream America threw his way, from white Jesus to macaroni and cheese, but finally found his home as leader of a rainbow coalition of lost boys up to no good: skate punks, dealers, hip-hop junkies, and sneaker freaks. This is the story of a Chinese-American kid in a could-be-anywhere cul-de-sac blazing his way through America’s deviant subcultures, trying to find himself, ten thousand miles from his legacy and anchored only by his conflicted love for his family and his passion for food. Funny, moving, and stylistically inventive, Fresh Off the Boat is more than a radical reimagining of the immigrant memoir—it’s the exhilarating story of every American outsider who finds his destiny in the margins. Praise for Fresh Off the Boat “Brash and funny . . . outrageous, courageous, moving, ironic and true.”—New York Times Book Review “Mercilessly funny and provocative, Fresh Off the Boat is also a serious piece of work. Eddie Huang is hunting nothing less than Big Game here. He does everything with style.”—Anthony Bourdain “Uproariously funny . . . emotionally honest.”—Chicago Tribune “Huang is a fearless ra

Fresh Off the Boat Book Description :

Dear Peaches, America is PERFECT! I love it here. I wish you could come visit -- we could go shopping on Market Street and you could meet all my new friends. . . . Okay, so Vicenza isn't being totally honest with Peaches, her best friend back in Manila. But what fun is it being the new girl at snooty Grosvernor High? Or rooting through the Salvation Army for unholey cashmere sweaters? Or having culture-shocked, embarrassingly clueless parents? Maybe being Claude Caligari's ignored geometry partner is sort of fun, but Vicenza would rather be his girlfriend . . . or at least his date to the annual fancy-schmancy Soirée d'Hiver. But Vicenza won't be friendless, fashionless, or "fresh off the boat" for long -- it's only a matter of time before she sees what's right before her eyes and her luck begins to change.

Double Cup Love Book Description :

From the author of Fresh Off the Boat, now a hit ABC sitcom, comes a hilarious and fiercely original story of culture, family, love, and red-cooked pork Eddie Huang was finally happy. Sort of. He’d written a bestselling book and was the star of a TV show that took him to far-flung places around the globe. His New York City restaurant was humming, his OKCupid hand was strong, and he’d even hung fresh Ralph Lauren curtains to create the illusion of a bedroom in the tiny apartment he shared with his younger brother Evan, who ran their restaurant business. Then he fell in love—and everything fell apart. The business was creating tension within the family; his life as a media star took him away from his first passion—food; and the woman he loved—an All-American white girl—made him wonder: How Chinese am I? The only way to find out, he decided, was to reverse his parents’ migration and head back to the motherland. On a quest to heal his family, reconnect with his culture, and figure out whether he should marry his American girl, Eddie flew to China with his two brothers and a mission: to set up shop to see if his food stood up to Chinese palates—and to immerse himself in the culture to see if his life made sense in China. Naturally, nothing went according to plan. Double Cup Love takes readers from Williamsburg dive bars to the skies over Mongolia, from Michelin-starred restaurants in Shanghai to street-side soup peddlers in Chengdu. The book rockets off as a sharply observed, globe-trotting comic adventure that turns into an existential suspense story with high stakes. Eddie takes readers to the crossroads where he has to choose between his past and his future, between who he once was and who he might become. Double Cup Love is about how we search for love and meaning—in family and culture, in romance and marriage—but also how that search, with all its aching and overpowering complexity, can deliver us to our truest selves. Praise for Eddie Huang’s

My Mom is a Fob Book Description :

Fob (noun)-derived from the acronym F.O.B. ("fresh off the boat") Does your mom still make Peking duck instead of turkey on Thanksgiving, own a giant cleaver, or take twenty-four more napkins than she needs at Chipotle? Your mom may be a fob. Through their hit blog "My Mom Is a Fob," Teresa and Serena Wu have seized ownership of this formerly derogatory term, applying it instead to the heartfelt, hilarious, and thoroughly unique ways that Asian mothers adapt to American culture, from the perspective of those who love them most: their children. Through texts, emails, phone calls, and more, My Mom Is a Fob showcases the stories of a community of Asian-American kids who know exactly what it's like to be on the receiving end of that amazing, unconditional, and sometimes misspelled love. It's about those Asian mothers who refuse to get in the car without their sun-protective arm sheaths, the ones who send us passive-aggressive text messages "from the dog" in hopes that we'll call home, and email us unsolicited advice about everything from homosexuality to constipation. In these pages you'll find solace in the fact that thousands of moms out there are as painfully nosy, unintentionally hilarious, and endearingly fobby as yours is.

Changing the Script Book Description :

Characters on television shows perform social roles while interacting with their environment, responding to social situations, and establishing positions in society. By observing these characters in situation comedies (sitcoms), viewers learn culturally specific social scripts. Primetime television has consistently depicted white social scripts that many have come to accept as “normal,” and black sitcoms have also established a presence in entertainment, but this has not been the case for Asian Americans. A black-white paradigm predominant in political and identity dialogue is also seen in entertainment where focus is placed on two racial groups, black and white, with virtually no Asian American presence. Due to entertainment’s role in popular culture, social scripts as shown on television are central to cultural production and the development of racialized identities. Though much has been written on the relationship between television and stereotyping, little has been done to explore how media utilizes social scripts in order to present racial narratives. In this essay, I examine race and diversity in media, discuss the climate of Asian American representation in entertainment, and explore the sitcom Fresh Off the Boat by ABC. I argue that the show incorporates several social scripts, including a white script and black script, while introducing an Asian American script, and discuss the methods used in order to do so, with tools such as sitcom form and othering. This essay discusses how social scripts exemplify ideologies that shape racial and ethnic identity, and explores the discursive techniques that facilitate Asian American representation, experience, and identity on television.

Fresh Off the Boat Book Description :

Fresh Off The Boat is a collection of irreverent yarns spun out in The Land of the Long White Cloud. A young couple escape England on a working holiday, but fall in love with New Zealand. Is it the volcanoes, slow internet, ancient cars, remoteness or unpredictable weather that make this faraway land so alluring? Over 4 years, Simon travelled the length and breadth of the Shaky Isles, accompanied by his willing (and occasionally unwilling) wife Sin�ad. Their stories are coloured by comedic experiences, intrepid detours, and a dry appraisal of everyday Kiwi life. The result: a curious and honest glimpse at a country with so very much, and so very little. Stunning natural beauty, a land of perfect road trips and a lot of cows. Fresh Off The Boat talks fishing, hot pools, fizzy beer, short shorts, overpriced housing, zero health and safety, and briefly mentions a team called the All Blacks. It's an enjoyable, fun-filled romp around Britain's long lost relative, New Zealand.
