9781885030900: Oriental Girls Desire Romance

It's 1980s New York, and though the coke flows freely, money and glamour are the more powerful intoxicants. While fortunes are being made in SoHo galleries and on Wall Street, an underclass of transient drag queens and dandies, club kids and strippers, artists and actors, models and waitstaff wander the streets, providing the city's background color, cheap labor and even cheaper entertainment. The unnamed narrator of Catherine Liu's 1997 novel Oriental Girls Desire Romance--now reprinted by Kaya Press--is a young Chinese-American woman who skirts the edges of New York privilege. A refugee both from her Ivy League education and a family of Maoist ideologues, she navigates the city as a slacker, temp and exotic dancer, outmaneuvering the ever-present lure of Prozac. Liu's debut novel recalls the seedy street atmosphere of Bette Gordon's 1984 film Variety through a narrator that is perceptive, funny and unhinged.

From Library Journal:

Told through scattered episodes, this meandering first novel by Liu (French, Univ. of Minnesota) is as directionless and open-ended as the life of its Chinese-born, twentysomething narrator, The narrator, who begins recording these life notes upon arriving in New York after a semester of teaching in China, describes her mismatched love relationships, painful childhood memories, teachers, jobs, and travels. She starts graduate school, frequents the seedier night spots, and works at a variety of temporary jobs, from legal secretary to topless go-go dancer. The abrupt ending leaves the book as a work in progress. Sharing her anxiety over her own seemingly meaningless existence and her observations of the equally empty lives of those around her, the narrator is at times funny and insightful and always understated, but the book is ultimately not satisfying reading. Recommended for academic libraries.?Rebecca A. Stuhr, Grinnell Coll. Libs., Iowa
