Cross Bronx is Peter Quinn’s one-of-a-kind account of his adventures as ad man, archivist, teacher, Wall Street messenger, court officer, political speechwriter, corporate scribe, and award-winning novelist. Like Pete Hamill, Quinn is a New Yorker through and through. His evolution from a childhood in a now-vanished Bronx, to his exploits in the halls of Albany and swish corporate offices, to then walking away from it all, is evocative and entertaining and enlightening from first page to last. Cross Bronx is bursting with witty, captivating stories.

Quinn is best known for his novels (all recently reissued by Fordham University Press under its New York ReLit imprint), most notably his American Book Award–winning novel Banished Children of Eve. Colum McCann has summed up Quinn’s trilogy of historical detective novels as “generous and agile and profound.” Quinn has now seized the time and inspiration afforded by “the strange interlude of the pandemic” to give his up-close-and-personal accounts of working as a speechwriter in political backrooms and corporate boardrooms.

For the final stop of the OUR LAUNDRY, OUR TOWN virtual book tour, We Love Big Books and We Cannot Lie joins us, and they share a great review of this highly entertaining memoir about finding one’s place in the world:

Where are you really from??🌎

I was born in South Korea🇰🇷and am really from there, Alyssa was born in Kansas City Missouri and her family is really from Wales.🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

In Our Laundry, Our Town (Fordham University Press) by Alvin Eng writer-performer as a first-generation Chinese American, he would frequently get asked this question when he would answer with: Flushing! He was born in the US, his father was a paper son and his parents had an arranged marriage before they were fully settled in the US. His family owns a hand laundry business, where he helps out, but would rather be a rock star!

In this memoir he recalls the ups and downs of his childhood growing up in Flushing NYC. He went into detail about how many times he felt like he didn’t quite fit in anywhere, he was never quite Chinese enough for Chinatown and not American enough for everyone else.

I enjoyed reading about Alvin Eng’s childhood and I was able to relate to many of things he went through, I think this would be a great audio book, with the author narrating!

Thank you for this gifted copy! You can find Our Laundry, Our Town on our Amazon storefront!🧜🏼‍♀️🌺

Title: OUR LAUNDRY, OUR TOWN: My Chinese American Life from Flushing to the Downtown Stage and Beyond by Alvin Eng

💭 THOUGHTS 💭
I really enjoyed this raw, heartwarming, and inspiring memoir by Alvin Eng! Readers are taken on a journey through the author's upbringing in Flushing (Queens, NY) during the 1970s and how he came to become an author, playwright, and artist . He discusses his family's struggles along with his own, being raised between a cross of two very different cultures while trying to find his own place in the world.

The author shares his personal experiences, the good and the bad, with us in such a beautiful and captivating way. He depicts what it was like growing up Chinese American in a somewhat dysfunctional family with many siblings. I love the role that music played in his upbringing and how it influenced him. This memoir puts emphasis on the "American dream", and what this can mean to some, while also putting emphasis on the Asian dream.

As an Asian American, this memoir is so very relatable as my family went through some similar struggles. It's about finding your place in the world, which isn't always easy, while trying to balance family dynamics. If you're into memoirs, I would highly recommend this one!

As we continue to celebrate heritage month, I am honored to have been given the opportunity by to read a memoir by Alvin Eng writer-performer. Alvin Eng grew up in Flushing, Queens, a neighborhood of that singular universe that was New York City in the 1970s – back then, his was one of the few immigrant Chinese families to live there. His parents had an arranged marriage and ran a Chinese Hand Laundry. Eng has created an illuminating time capsule of the Chinese-American experience, from the Chinatowns of the U.S to China’s motherland. Eng explores issues of identity, race, and societal expectations with marvelous humor, introspection and tenderness. Eng reconciles the push and pull of an insular home life with the turbulent yet inspiring street life around him – from faux martial arts TV stars to punk rock and theater. In the 1970s, NYC, like most of the world, was in the throes of regenerating itself in the wake of major social and cultural changes resulting from the Counterculture and Civil Rights movements. These same systemic conflicts form the core of our current global reckoning on representation and identity.

By the 1980s, Chinese culture began to flourish in Flushing. Yet, Eng remained an outsider of sorts because he was one of Flushing’s few Chinese citizens who could not speak fluent Chinese. As a theatre practitioner and professor in the 21st century, discovering the under-chronicled Chinese influence on Thornton Wilder’s seminal Americana drama, Our Town, became the unlikely catalyst for a psyche-healing pilgrimage.

At City University of Hong Kong, Alvin and his wife, director/dramaturg Wendy Wasdahl, led a Fulbright Specialist devised theatre residency on the Chinese influence on Our Town. From this residency, the US Consulate Guangzhou invited Alvin to perform his Our Town-inspired solo, The Last Emperor of Flushing, in his family’s ancestral Guangdong Province of southern China. Learning to proudly tell his own story on stage helped to make him whole. Fordham University Press
