"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 "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
"Uproariously funny . . . emotionally honest."--Chicago Tribune
"Huang is a fearless raconteur. [His] writing is at once hilarious and provocative; his incisive wit pulls through like a perfect plate of dan dan noodles."--Interview
"Although writing a memoir is an audacious act for a thirty-year-old, it is not nearly as audacious as some of the things Huang did and survived even earlier. . . . Whatever he ends up doing, you can be sure it won't look or sound like anything that's come before. A single, kinetic passage from Fresh Off the Boat . . . is all you need to get that straight."--Bookforum
