219 pages3 hours


In the author's words, "A friendly invasion is an invasion nonetheless." This is a humorous personal perspective of how the new wave of Asian immigrants pouring into the San Gabriel Valley has transformed life there. As seen through the eyes of the Artist/Author, this book paints a picturesque exposé of the rapidly changing demographics of the Valley that is as sensitive as it is funny. The contents provide a wild ride of essays and cartoons that touch upon such topics of interest as Samurai Image and Wealth, Politics, Samurai Restaurants and Dining Experiences, Music and Entertainment, Feng Shui, the Dating Disparity Issue, the Asian Intellectual Superiority Myth, Karaoke Clubs, Samurai Supermarket Adventures, and much more! This perspective is essential reading for anyone interested in contemporary American or Asian American studies!
