Eating Chinese Food Naked
Twenty-two-year-old Ruby Lee is already world weary. After graduating from Columbia, she finds herself back home at Lee's Hand Laundry in Queens. And the longer she stays, the more she must confront the family and emotions she has tried to escape - the hundreds of laundry parcels stacked in the living room, the detail and distraction of her mother's Chinese cooking, and the sexual fantasies that have been a part of her waking and dreaming life. A witty and poignant novel, Eating Chinese Food Naked explores the complex relationship between a mother and a daughter.
