Summary (From the publisher):

a darkly comic first novel about alienation, identity, and the Chinese-American experience. The son of Chinese immigrants, Sterling Lung grows up with the dream of becoming a "real" American. But with each new disappointment -- his father wants him to become a doctor, he becomes a talented chef; his mother hopes for a Chinese bride, he dabbles in a long-distance relationship with a Jewish-American Princess from New Canaan -- Sterling discovers that being both an all-American boy and a dutiful Chinese son remains an impossible dream.
