And yeah, I totally think Pham has some self-hate issues that he'd been working through in that book. Have to add, though, that I related to those parts a lot -- not only for times in my life when I was dealing with those issues myself, but also for many American-born Asian-Americans I grew up with (including family). I'm not sure if this was only relevant to immigrant minorities growing up in mostly-white communities, or just something that's part of the first-generation experience.
I'd be really interested in reading about the immigrant experience in non-English speaking countries, to see how other immigrants relate to being immersed in another culture.
