Eddie Huang was raised by a wild family of FOB ( fresh off the boat ) immigrants his father a cocksure restaurateur with a dark past back in Taiwan, his mother a fierce protector and constant threat. Young Eddie tried his hand at everything mainstream America threw his way, from white Jesus to macaroni and cheese, but finally found his home as leader of a rainbow coalition of lost boys up to no good: skate punks, dealers, hip-hop junkies, and sneaker freaks.

Whatever he ends up doing, you can be sure it won t look or sound like anything that s come before. A single, kinetic passage from "Fresh Off the Boat" . . . is all you need to get that straight.
