Synopsis
Nick Carbo's Secret Asian Man is a hilarious and poignant look at the immigrant experience. The hero of this collection of poems is Ang Tunay na Lalaki, the Filipino equivalent of the Marlboro Man. Macho and bare chested, he endorses gin. When he finds himself transplanted in New York City and auditioning as a bit actor, disillusionment quickly sets in. He realizes he, as an Asian man, will never be a sex symbol in America. Inspired by Johnny Rivers's song "Secret Agent Man", Ang Tunay na Lalaki becomes a spy, rescuing Hello Kitty when Barney fails, sniffing out the criminals of America's racist pop culture and literary canon. Secret Asian Man has the twists of a mystery thriller -- murder, revenge, and mind-boggling clues.
