"In his collection of 21 personal essays, East Eats West: Writing in Two Hemispheres, Andrew Lam explores not only how the East and West have respectively changed but how they are changing in conjunction with each other. The cofounder if New America Media possesses a talent for details that lure you in page after page no matter the topic - from Naruto to tiger bone soup to talking to Ghosts. In this follow-up his award-winning Perfume Dreams: Reflections on the Vietnamese Diaspora, Lam creates an anthology that is part memoir, part meditation and part cultural revelation.
