Description


Have you ever wondered:

  • Why Asians love "Hello Kitty"?

  • What the tattooed Chinese characters really say?
  • How to achieve feng shui for optimum make-out sessions?
  • Where Asian cuties meet the white guys who love them?
  • Then you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll realize this book is better than a Broadway production of Cats when you read scenes that include:

    • twenty-something Lindsey Owyang mastering the intricacies of office voicemail and fax dialing

  • an authentic Chinese banquet where Number One Son shows off his language skills by speaking "Chinglish"
  • dating disasters with grandsons of Grandma's mahjong partners
  • the discovery that the real China looks nothing like the pavilion at Disney World
  • karaoke
  • And all the while Lindsey is falling in lust with the "white devil" in her politically correct office. But will Grandma's stinky Chinese ointments send him running? Or will Lindsey realize that the path to true love lies somewhere between the dim sum and the pepperoni pizza?

    About the Author


    In the fourth grade, Kim Wong Keltner won a cutthroat spelling bee, which encouraged her aspirations as a writer. Over the years, she honed her ear for dialogue by listening to elderly Chinese women dish dirt over endless games of mahjong. She met her husband at a Chaucer seminar when she stretched out her hand and said, "Come with me if you want to live." They now reside in San Francisco's Sunset District, where all the other Chinese people live.
