Eddie Huang Gets a Book Deal: Undercover Brother

New, 6 comments

Are you ready for rabblerouser/bao slinger Eddie Huang's second book? (His first, a memoir, came out in January.) Here comes Undercover Brother, in which Huang will recount the tale of going to mainland China with his brother, "armed only with New York savvy and middle-school Mandarin to become food vendors on the streets of Beijing." So like a buddy cop movie, only instead of fighting crime they're selling street food?

Anyway, according to Publishers Marketplace, the book will be a "personal journey into the heart of an immigrant's identity" in which "two brothers [reverse] their family saga." Also, it will be "a business adventure in the wild-west of the world's fastest growing economy." No word on when it will be released, but it will be published by Spiegel & Grau (part of Random House), who also did Huang's first book.
