“Leland Cheuk’s novel No Good Very Bad Asian is moving, unsettling, and one of the funniest books I have read in a long time.
The Brooklyn Rail wrote of the book:
“The balance between comic and serious is crucial in literary comedy. Stray too far in either direction and you fail, becoming simplistic on one hand, boring on the other. While a perfect balance is admittedly impossible, never mind a matter of taste, Leland Cheuk does an admirable job in his latest, No Good Very Bad Asian, achieving a true synthesis of heart and humor highlighted by the fluidity of his first-person voice and a steady diet of sharp turns of prose.”
