Charles Yu author of Interior Chinatown at Pages on Sunday, Februrary 16th at 3pm
"Interior Chinatown" is a deeply personal novel about race, pop culture, and escaping the roles we are forced to playby the author of the infinitely inventive "How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe."

Willis Wu doesnt perceive himself as a protagonist even in his own life: Hes merely Generic Asian man. Sometimes he gets to be Background Oriental Making a Weird Face or even Disgraced Son, but he is always relegated to a prop. Yet every day he leaves his tiny room in a Chinatown SRO and enters the Golden Palace restaurant, where Black and White, a procedural cop show, is in perpetual production. Hes a bit player here, too, but he dreams of being Kung Fu Guythe most respected role that anyone who looks like him can attain. At least thats what he has been told, time and time again. Except by one person, his mother. Who says to him: Be more.

Playful but heartfelt, a send-up of Hollywood tropes and Asian stereotypes, Interior Chinatown is Charles Yus most moving, daring, and masterly novel yet.

CHARLES YU is the author of three previous books, including the novel "How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe" (a New York Times Notable Book and a Time magazine best book of the year). He received the National Book Foundations 5 Under 35 Award and was nominated for two Writers Guild of America Awards for his work on the HBO series, Westworld. He has also written for shows on FX, AMC, and HBO. His fiction and nonfiction have appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Wired, among other publications.
