I've read Spiegelman's first book MAUS: My Father Bleeds History. I enjoyed it, and I would like to continue the series.

This is the best punctuation and grammar book I've ever encountered. The example sentences are engaging and I love the dark monstrous illustrations.

I hope this helps me take a more technical approach to teaching Digital Photography.

American Born Chinese | Gene Luen Yang

While I'm uncomfortable with the harmful stereotypes presented in the text, I can relate to feeling embarrassed by my family's culture. My husband's family comes from the North East; my family comes from the South. I had to overcome my feelings of shame regarding Southern American Dialect when the two families collided during my wedding. I'm excited to continue reading because I hope to discover the author's intent in his portrayal of Chin-kee.

AveryD I have a similar experience. Sometimes at lunch people make fun of the way my food smells. Food is a large part of my family's culture, and the judgement I receive from others makes me embarrassed, but I love the food. 3mo
Lorea What's your prediction for the author's intention in using this harmful depiction of a Chinese individual? I wonder if the benefits of the portrayal outweigh the harm it can do. 3mo
CohenReads I think the author is using the character as a form of satire. I think that w/o discussion these portrayals can do harm. The benefit comes from having open discussions about them. What do you think? Do you think it's more harmful or more beneficial? 3mo
