From the “Tiger Mother” to Take-Out Chinese, Asian-American culture is so deeply entrenched in our understanding of the American fabric, we sometimes don’t know we’re talking about it when we’re talking about.

Collecting a decade’s worth of essays, from his award-winning analysis of the Virginia Tech murderer to his cult classic looks at mandarin zombies, pickup artists, and immigrant strivers, Wesley Yang’s highly anticipated new book, The Souls of Yellow Folk is a watershed of engaging and provocative new perspectives on what it truly means to have and hold an American Dream.

Join journalist and radio host Angie Coiro as she sits down with one of the most inspiring new essayists of our time.
