The February pick for our ‘Now Read This’ book club was “Interior Chinatown," winner of the 2020 National Book Award. It’s a funny and biting satire of stereotypes of Asian Americans in popular culture. The book's author, Charles Yu, also writes for television, including the HBO show, “Westworld.” Jeffrey Brown spoke with Yu for our ongoing arts and culture series, "CANVAS."
