Read in July, 2011

Hilarious memoir from a Paris Review editor who decides to open a Korean deli with his wife's family. Vivid portrait of a Boston-bred WASP who dares to foray in to the grimy world of immigrant-run small business. As the child of first gen Asian immigrant small business owners and an aspiring writer, this book rings true on many levels; Howe is self-aware and appropriately self-deprecating. I laughed out loud at least once every 18 pages, no exaggeration.
