What a Tiger Mother thinks is ferocity is just control-freakiness turned rancid like frozen breast milk left in the mini Tupperware too long. Tiger Mom, I'm just t that into you - From Tiger Babies Strike Back . After Amy Chua's controversial parenting book became fodder for every morning talk show, Kim Wong Keltner wasn't surprised to be asked, Are you a Tiger Mother? Raised by a Tiger Mom herself, Kim wasn't fazed. Instead, she's striking back. Hard. Traversing the choppy seas of American and Chinese traditions, Keltner dives into the difficulties facing women today - Chinese-American and otherwise. At once deeply relevant and playfully honest, Keltner attempts to dispel Chua's myth that all Chinese women are Tiger Mothers and that all parents should rule with an iron fist. Topics include: White Thing, I Think I Love You: East Meets West in the Board Room and the Bedroom; I Was Raised by a Tiger Mom and All I Got Was this Lousy T-Shirt: A Rebuttal to Chua, with More Anecdotes from the Wong Family Tree; My Car and Kid Are Both Hybrids; Imperial Ferocity vs. Feminine Vulnerability: Dragon Lady or Chinese Mary Magdalene? The first and only book of its kind to take Tiger Mothers on by their teeth, Tiger Babies Strike Back combines personal anecdotes and tough love advice for a humorous, provocative look at how our families shape-and sometimes shake-our personal foundations.
The only thing that keeps Kim Wong Keltner from writing is when she's trapped under an avalanche of her daughter's stuffed animals. Keltner is the author of The Dim Sum of All Things, Buddha Baby, and I Want Candy. Tiger Babies Strike Back is her first work of nonfiction.
