Mu Shu Mac & Cheese by Karen Lin


With her household the focus of a TV reality show, food writer Elaine’s professional dreams are about to come true. But her dominating Chinese mother-in-law’s unexpected arrival blends the filming with more than a dash of culture clash. All too soon, Ma wants to chaperone Elaine’s son to prom and otherwise brings the household’s pot to a full boil. MU SHU MAC & CHEESE explores how far a corn-grown foodie will go to save her family’s happy life from being sliced and diced. It’s Julia Child meets My Big Fat CHINESE Wedding. Copies may be purchased through Amazon.
