Hailed for his sharp wit and incisive social commentary, Charles Yu is an acclaimed author and screenwriter whose work is as inventive as it is moving.?Interior Chinatown, his fourth and most recent novel, is at once a satirical meditation on immigration, assimilation, and Hollywood stereotyping of Asian Americans and a touching portrait of a family. A National Book Award winner and a “Most Anticipated Book” by?Entertainment Weekly, TIME,?The Rumpus, and others,?Interior Chinatown?follows the story of Willis Wu, who has been cast in the role of “Generic Asian Man” in the ongoing procedural cop show “Black and White,” as he struggles to transcend the rigid and reductive roles available to those who look like him. Both extensively researched and startlingly original,?Interior Chinatown?is a profound and topical exploration of the weight of stereotypes, racism, and assimilation in American culture.
