Join us for a discussion of the 2021 One Book, One Region selection, Interior Chinatown by Charles Yu. The discussion will be led by Laurie Wolfley, professor at UConn Avery Point.
Willis Wu doesn’t perceive himself as the protagonist in his own life: he’s merely Generic Asian Man. After stumbling into the spotlight, Willis finds himself launched into a wider world than he’s ever known, discovering not only the secret history of Chinatown, but the buried legacy of his own family. Infinitely inventive and deeply personal, exploring the themes of pop culture, assimilation, and immigration—Interior Chinatown is Charles Yu’s most moving, daring, and masterful novel yet.
Copies of the book are available at the library. Programming may be affected or cancelled due to COVID-19.
