The novel goes on to describe the experience of Donald coming to term with his multi-faceted identity. Common 1st-generation Asian-American issues arise in the story, such as relationships with parents, rejection and acceptance of culture, and FOOODDD (most important, obviously).
It's a great option when looking into a read that is not too academic, but intellectual and telling of the experiences of Chinese Americans-- especially seeing that it is written from the perspective of controversial Chinese-American author, Frank Chin, who is considered a leader in the Asian-American movement. He has written novels and plays influenced by his Asian-American identity.
