Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"I cracked up reading Shawn Wong's witty, tender, wise, and sexy new novel. His lovable but ambivalent protagonist collides memorably with a cast of female characters who are a welcome change from the shrinking violets and silent martyrs we've come to expect from 'ethnic' literature. American Knees is contemporary to the bone - a highly entertaining, deftly written, provocative and moving work of fiction." — Jessica Hagedorn, author of Dogeaters

Shawn Wong is the author of the award-winning novel Homebase and an editor of several anthologies of Asian American literature, including Aiiieeeee! and The Big Aiiieeeee! He is the director of the University Honors Program at the University of Washington.
