HOW TO AMERICAN An Immigrant's Guide To Disappointing Your Parents

by | Read by Jimmy O. Yang

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Comic and actor Jimmy O. Yang (CRAZY RICH ASIANS) will keep listeners giggling with his perspective on growing up in Hong Kong and then in America. He contrasts images of high-rise apartments with life as an immigrant teenager in California. Yang is earnest, bringing a smoothness to his delivery that will make listeners feel as though they're listening to a friend and not a Hollywood actor. He uses an accent to represent his Asian parents that is politically incorrect yet provides a sense of their hilarious personalities. From childhood pets that ended up on the dinner table to his struggles to make sense of American high school, Yang's anecdotes make for enjoyable listening. His stand-up comedy background is put to excellent use as an audiobook narrator. M.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2018]
