This week for Vulture, Eddie Huang ’04 writes about his experience with ABC turning his memoir, Fresh Off the Boat, into a "cornstarch sitcom" and him into a mascot for America. And he's not happy about it. Or not entirely. Read what he has to say here.

Also check out coverage from The New Yorker and Orlando Sentinel.

We also did a Q&A with him in 2011 when his memoir was being released and a profile on him and his clothing line, Hoodman, in 2009.
