Praise for Frank Chin

“Frank Chin’s unique literary recipe—red hot chop suey laced with laughing powder and amphetamines—makes most so-called ‘modern’ writing look old-fashioned, chauvinistic and tedious.” —Tom Robbins

“A gifted writer and electric sensibility, Frank Chin is part Chinese Lenny Bruce, spritzing a comedy of bitter alienation, and part Number One Son, drawn to the traditional Chinese values—family, duty—which have been diluted by American culture.” —Newsweek
