F. O. B.


 I’ve been trying to read more books written by Asian American authors.  Pachinko by Min Jin Lee was first on my list, followed by Everything Belongs to Us by Yoojin Grace Wurtz, then Eddie Huangs Fresh off the Boat.   The first two books were fictional and pretty somber.  The Han is real in these stories.  I really enjoyed Eddie Huangs book the most of the three.  It was honest and closest to relatable for me growing up Asian American in white America.
