"Asian Americans inhabit a purgatorial status: neither white enough nor black enough, unmentioned in most conversations about racial identity. In the popular imagination, Asian Americans are all high-achieving professionals. But in reality, this is the most economically divided group in the country, a tenuous alliance of people with roots from South Asia to East Asia to the Pacific Islands, from tech millionaires to service industry laborers ...

Essays on racism, the author’s Korean-American identity, friendships, artistic development, and Richard Pryor (among other things). Striking: “One characteristic of racism is that children are treated like adults and adults are treated like children. Watching a parent being debased like a child is the deepest shame.” ( )

I was not familiar with poet and essayist Cathy Park Hong, but I loved this blend of memoir, and social commentary. Mostly surrounding her immigrant Korean parents but also looking at racial disparities throughout America. She is a fine writer and pulls no punches. A tough, frank approach, which I really admire.

"minor feelings: the racialized range of emotions that are negative, dysphoric, and therefore untelegenic, built from the sediments of everyday racial experience and the irritant of having one’s perception of reality constantly questioned or dismissed"

Hong is able to articulate a more subtle, internalised kind of existence that is not quite enough to be loud about, but just enough to feel uneasy.

Although her experiences encapsulate a lot more grim, self-loathing insecurities ("I recited my poems in the kazoo that is my voice. After my reading, everyone rushed for the exit [...] I was performing for a roomful of bored white people and I desperately wanted their approval."); even beyond such "minor feelings", the book itself is a minor survey in Asian history and poetry with a writing structure that is partly stream-of-consciousness; referencing her own poetic style that is the dissection of English language.

Well-written and engaging exploration of the Asian American experience. ( )

Deeper reading than I usually tackle. In essays, the author lays open the tricky balance of being Asian in white America. The white and colonial influence worldwide is heavy and she leans into the realization that she and Asians as a whole have accommodated and reduced themselves to make white people happy. No more, clearly. ( )
