"In the aftermath of a messy divorce, Frances Kai-Hwa Wang writes in the hope of beginning to build a new life with four children, bossy aunties, unreliable suitors, and an uncertain political landscape. The lyric essays in You Cannot Resist Me When My Hair Is in Braids deftly navigate the space between cultures and reflect on lessons learned from both Asian American elders and young multiracial children, punctuated by moments rich with cultural and linguistic nuance... Within these lyric essays, some of which are accompanied by artwork and art installations, Wang finds the courage and hope to speak out for herself and for an entire generation of Asian American women." -- Amazon.com

Meh submitted by 21621031390949 on June 10, 2022, 9:03pm Really didn’t much like this book, which is written in a kind of prose poetry. Didn’t care for the writing style and the story wasn’t engaging for me.
