2020 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD WINNER NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 'One of the funniest books of the year. . . . A delicious, ambitious Hollywood satire.' & #8212 The Washington Post From the infinitely inventive author of  How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe,  a deeply personal novel about race, pop culture, immigration, assimilation, and escaping the roles we are forced to play. Willis Wu doesn& #8217 t perceive himself as the protagonist in his own life: he& #8217 s merely Generic Asian Man. Sometimes he gets to be Background Oriental Making a Weird Face or even Disgraced Son, but always he is 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. He& #8217 s a bit player here, too, but he dreams of being Kung Fu Guy& #8212 the most respected role that anyone who looks like him can attain. Or is it? After stumbling into the spotlight, Willis finds himself launched into a wider world than he& #8217 s ever known, discovering not only the secret history of Chinatown, but the buried legacy of his own family. Infinitely inventive and deeply personal, exploring the themes of pop culture, assimilation, and immigration& #8212 Interior Chinatown  is Charles Yu& #8217 s most moving, daring, and masterful novel yet. 'Fresh and beautiful. . . .  Interior Chinatown  represents yet another stellar destination in the journey of a  sui generis  author of seemingly limitless skill and ambition.& #8221   & #8212 The New York Times Book Review
