Interior Chinatown - Charles Yu - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of Interior Chinatown:

The wisdom and growth of Kung Fu Guy.

My favorite Charles Yu quote in the book:

"But the widest gulf in the world is the distance between getting by and not quite getting by."

Questions to ponder while reading Interior Chinatown:

What stereotypes do you believe?

What makes an American, American?

My review of Interior Chinatown:

An exploration into the challenges Americans of Asian descent face.

Don't we all have similar dreams?

The screenplay format could be hard to follow at times.
