Pressestimmen"Jeffery Chan's story is humorous, satirical, and at times hilarious...but with an understated seriousness that articulates a unique Chinese American sensibility."--Marlon K. Hom, Professor and Chair, Asian American Studies, San Francisco State University "Eat Everything Before You Die is informed by Chan's extensive knowledge of Asian American literature. The novel references and pays homage to several pioneering works--most significantly to Louis Chu's Eat a Bowl of Tea... While Eat a Bowl of Tea concerned itself with the bachelor society in New York City's Chinatown and Chinese American history, Eat Everything Before You Die works with issues of pop culture, stereotypes, race, identity, and the family society."--Shawn Wong, author of Homebase and American Knee
