“Yes, yes. I ate dumplings this morning.” 💙

This book is about a 24 year old Chinese American tech writer from the Bay area who moves across the country with her boyfriend who is attending grad school in upstate NY. Lots of conflicting thoughts about this one. I think some people will read this and feel seen. I’m just not one of them but I don’t think I was the intended audience, to be honest. I found it a bit unfocused at first, so much so that I put it down for long periods of time without wanting to pick it back up. There were things that felt so insightful about Asian American life and a dose of Asian American history included as well and I really appreciated those moments but ultimately, the meandering musings just didn’t appeal to me. Again, I really think this would work for a different person, perhaps someone closer to the 24 year old protagonist’s age so I encourage you to give it a try. 💙
