From the back cover: "When you come from a mixed-race background as Paisley Rekdal does--her mother is Chinese American and her father is Norwegian--thorny issues of identity politics and interracial desire are never far from the surface. Here in this hypnotic blend of personal essay and travelogue, Rekdal journeys throughout Asia to explore her place in a world in which one's 'appearance is the deciding factor of one's ethnicity.'"
