A tour-de-force by rising indy comics star Gene Yang, American Born Chinese tells the story of three apparently unrelated characters: Jin Wang, who moves to a new neighborhood with his family only to discover that he's the only Chinese-American student at his new school; the powerful Monkey King, subject of one of the oldest and greatest Chinese fables; 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 this action-packed modern fable. American Born Chinese is an amazing ride, all the way up to the astonishing climax. American Born Chinese is a 2006 National Book Award Finalist for Young People's Literature, the winner of the 2007 Eisner Award for Best Graphic Album: New, an Eisner Award nominee for Best Coloring and a 2007 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

The first sixteen years of his life had been colorful and complicated. There had been easy times, but there were difficult ones as well, but all were integral stages in life. Now, author Kevin Y. Lu shares the insights to his life as an American Born Chinese in his newly published memoir, ABC. In eleven briefly written vignettes, the author encapsulated the interesting moments of his first sixteen years. Engaging, thoughtful, and candid, these quick glimpses of his life allow readers to also see the momentous milestones that led to his maturation. He describes how depressed he was in "Broke at Age Three" when his mother taught him the value and importance of money; how he felt after "Cutting risk" when his mother encouraged him, only six years old at that time, to use real cooking knives instead of just plastic knives; how dejected he was when his mother confiscated his Gameboy because he was unintentionally manipulating her trust; how wronged he felt when his teacher didn't appreciate his cleverly written "Trump's Play"; and how prescient he was when pondering the significance of awards; and how incorrect his original thoughts were about the divine power teachers have over their students. He turns to a more serious tone as he relates his work experience in the business world through real estate; and finally his international job experience which allowed him to understand the reasons for the differences between America's and Australia's economy. These and more await readers as they get to know the author through the pages of ABC. From simple childhood adventures to involvement in serious business, the life of this Asian American has been far more complex than even he had thought.

Genau wie so viele Teens in New York sieht auch Craig Gillner die Aufnahme in die Manhattan Executive Pre-Professional High School als Ticket in die Zukunft an. Doch als er den Aufnahmetest bestanden hat, beginnen seine Selbstzweifel, immer stärker zu werden. Schließlich, als es für ihn nur noch die Alternative Selbstmord gibt, weist er sich selbst in die Psychiatrie ein. Und genau dort, wo es niemand vermuten würde, in Gesellschaft einer Gruppe von seltsamen Menschen um seinen ägyptischen Zimmernachbarn, der sich seit Jahren weigert, sein Bett zu verlassen, einen chassidischen Juden, der an den Folgen zu heftigen Acid-Genusses leidet und eines sexsüchtigen Transsexuellen, findet Craig zurück zu alten längst vergessenen Stärken.
