As a Vietnamese girl coming of age in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Nguyen is filled with a rapacious hunger for American identity. The glossy branded allure of Pringles, Kit Kats, and Toll House Cookies becomes an ingenious metaphor for Nguyen''s struggle to become a real American.
From the Publisher:
A coming-of-age memoir by a Vietnamese American recounts her struggles for an American identity in the pre-politically correct climate of the Midwest and her passion for American food in the face of her family's Buddhist lifestyle.
Bich Minh Nguyen arrived in Michigan from Vietnam when she was a baby, and--living with her father and stepmother--plunged happily into American food and pop culture: Hamburger Helper, Hostess Twinkies, and some of the worst TV shows of the 1970s and ?80s. This memoir details, often hilariously, her attempts to fit into American culture, with a poignant undertone of sadness for the Vietnamese mother who was left behind.
