Double Cup Love…

I just completed reading (and would not recommend) Eddie Huang’s Double Cup Love: On the Trail of Family, Food, and Broken Hearts in China.  Consider me a glutton for punishment, but while I was greatly disappointed with his first book, this had even far less to like than that one.

Huang is an incredibly gifted business entrepreneur but falls short as a social commentator.  Double Cup is full of slang and profanity – a wave of criticism (full of generalizations and contradictions) bringing about little to no solutions.  I feel for him.  I really do.  But this will most likely be the last book I read of his.

If you do decide to pick up a copy then feel free to share your experience.  I would love to carry on the conversation with you….
