Reader's Circle: Interior Chinatown
APRIL READERS CIRCLE: INTERIOR CHINATOWN
For those of you who like to read ahead, our April book will be the Wilmette Public Library’s "One Book Everyone Reads." Interior Chinatown by Charles Yu tells the story of Willis Wu, an Asian American actor, who is perpetually cast as Generic Asian man, but who aspires to play the role of Kung Fu guy, the most respected role that anyone of Asian descent can attain. Written in the form of a screenplay, Wu and the others in his world move seamlessly between their everyday lives in and around Chinatown and their characters’ lives inside the storyline of Black and White, a cop show that is in constant production. Utilizing satire and humor, the book is a unique and inventive narrative that takes a lens to race, immigration, stereotypes, pop culture, Hollywood, and the roles that people are forced to play in the modern world.
