A tour-de-force by New York Times bestselling graphic novelist Gene Yang, A merican Born Chinese tells the story of three apparently unrelated characte rs: Jin Wang, who moves to a new neighborhood with his family only to disco ver that he's the only Chinese-American student at his new school; the powe rful Monkey King, subject of one of the oldest and greatest Chinese fables; and Chin-Kee, a personification of the ultimate negative Chinese stereotyp e, who is ruining his cousin Danny's life with his yearly visits.
