Cultural Writing. Asian American Studies. THE CHOPSTICKS-FORK PRINCIPLE, A MEMOIR AND MANUAL by Cathy Bao Bean is about how she and her husband, artist Bennett Bean, raised their son biculturally, although it is evocative of far more than that "shared and separate" family journey. "Zany, moving, hilarious, and deep--not infrequently all at once--Cathy Bao Bean gives us a rollicking tour of the Bean method of merging work and play while negotiating cultural and generational divides. THE CHOPSTICKS-FORK PRINCIPLE creates a daily life far richer than its original constituent parts. Cathy Bao Bean has written a tart, feisty, whimsical and penetrating saga of the family that invented the Chopsticks-Fork Principle and then proceeded to live by it"--Celia Morris, author of Finding Celia's Place.
