Chang Rae-Lee is raking it in. 'Native Speaker' has been picked up by the ethnic studies mafia that operates in US universities, and so hundreds if not thousands of people have to read this book every year. what a genius !
that said, at least Native Speaker is a pretty good read. it gets skippy at points, and the whole climax or whatnot could have been remixed, but as the korean american students all say, "it captures my life!!!"
