Praise

Double Cup Love invites the readers to journey through [Eddie Huang’s] love story, new friendships, brotherhood, a whole lot of eating and more. Huang’s honest recounting shouts and whispers on every page in all-caps dialogues and hilarious side-commentary. Huang pulls simple truths and humor out of his complex adventure to China. His forthright sharing of anecdotes is sincere and generates uncontrollable laughter. . . . His latest memoir affirms not only that the self-described “human panda” is an engaging storyteller but a great listener, especially in the language of food.”Chicago Tribune

“An elaborate story of love and self-discovery . . . [Eddie] Huang’s writing is wry and zippy; he regards the world with an understanding of its absurdities and injustices and with a willingness to be surprised.”—Jon Caramanica, The New York Times
 
“Huang is determined to tease out the subtle and not-so-subtle ways in which Asian-Americans give up parts of themselves in order to move forward. . . . Fortunately for us, he’s not afraid to speak up about it.”The New Yorker
 
“Huang connects in Chengdu the same way he assimilated in America—through food, hip-hop and a never-ending authenticity, which readers experience through his hilarious writing voice and style.”—New York Daily News

“Another punch of passion . . . With his gift for conversation, edgy humor, and deeply knowledgeable palate, readers get a sense of a young chef on a serious quest. . . . His passion for food and determination to get things right—in the U.S., in China, and in his heart of hearts—mark every page.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“Huang possesses a fiery descriptive flair capable of splicing disparate cultural references with the acuity of a yakitori grill master. . . . A challenging author continues to bravely bare his soul along with his best dishes.”Kirkus Reviews
