The review of this Book prepared by SenseiJoe
The youngest son of successful Korean immigrants, Alex Kim is less concerned with discovering his ethnic heritage than reminding everybody that he is an American. He's no Asian Whiz Kid, just an average student trying to make his way through college in a dreary reality of nerdy roommates, a lousy part-time job, and a remarkably reticent girlfriend.
As Alex's stultifying life closes in on him, an opportunity to break away presents itself - embodied in the mythically beautiful, if somewhat dogmatic, Naomi. Alex leads us on a comically wry journey through every form of silliness college life has to offer as he tries to make sense of his place in the universe without "swirling down the metaphysical toilet bowl."
