A tour-de-force by New York Times bestselling graphic novelist Gene Luen Yang, American Born Chinese tells the story of three apparently unrelated characters: Jin Wang, who moves to a new neighbourhood with his family only to discover that he's the only Chinese-American student at his school; the powerful Monkey King, subject of one of the oldest and greatest tales from Chinese folklore; and Chin-Kee, a personification of the ultimate negative Chinese stereotype, who is ruining his cousin Danny's life with his yearly visits. Their lives and stories come together with an unexpected twist in a twenty-first century fable that is hilarious, poignant, and action-packed.
