Kim Wong Keltner - Tiger Babies Strike Back


Kim Wong Keltner is a Tiger Baby all grown up with a daughter of her own . . . but is she a Tiger Mother? Heck, no. This book describes--in hilarious, and sometimes heartbreaking, detail--exactly why not.Traversing the choppy seas of American and Chinese traditions, Keltner dives into the difficulties facing women today--Chinese American and otherwise. At once deeply relevant and playfully honest, Tiger Babies Strike Back ($13.99) combines personal anecdotes and tough love advice for a humorous, provocative look at how our families shape--and sometimes shake--our personal foundations.

In the fourth grade, Kim Wong Keltner won a cutthroat spelling bee, which encouraged her aspirations as a writer. Over the years, she honed her ear for dialogue by listening to elderly Chinese women dish dirt over endless games of mahjong. She met her husband at a Chaucer seminar when she stretched out her hand and said, "Come with me if you want to live." They now reside in San Francisco's Sunset District, where all the other Chinese people live.
