Last winter, FRESH OFF THE BOAT—a bold and hilarious memoir by chef and restaurateur Eddie Huang— received tons of critical praise, went on to become a national bestseller, and was named one of the Best Books of the Year by Kirkus Reviews.
The son of FOB (“fresh off the boat”) immigrants, young Eddie tried his hand at everything mainstream America threw his way, but finally found his home as leader of a rainbow coalition of lost boys up to no good: skate punks, hip-hop junkies, and sneaker freaks.
“Bawdy and frequently hilarious . . . a surprisingly sophisticated memoir
about race and assimilation in America . . . as much James Baldwin and Jay-Z as Amy Tan . . . rowdy [and] vital . . . It’s a book about fitting in by not fitting in at all.” —Dwight Garner, The New York Times
Now, Huang’s memoir provides the basis for FRESH OFF THE BOAT, a new comedy series coming soon to ABC.
