Noir, Neon, Karaoke, Crime DRAFT (2)

 

Come for the drink specials, Wong Kar-wai-esque neon lighting, and writer Henry Chang reading from his new book Death Money. Stay for the karaoke. Part of Chang’s Detective Jack Yu series, Death Money takes us from the benevolent associations of Chinatown to the take-out restaurants, strip clubs, and underground gambling establishments of the Bronx, to a wealthy, exclusive New Jersey borough. This reading in the basement bar of Asia Roma brings us into the dark and lively world of Jack Yu’s Chinatown.

Henry Chang is a New Yorker, a native son of Chinatown and the Lower East Side. His poems have appeared in the seminal Yellow Pearl anthology, and in Gangs In New York’s Chinatown. He has written for Bridge Magazine, and his fiction has appeared in On A Bed Of Rice and in the NuyorAsian Anthology. His debut novel Chinatown Beat garnered high praise from the New York Times Book Review, the Boston Globe, the Washington Post, among others.

$10 entry includes a drink of choice (cocktail, beer, or wine), and a chance to win a free copy of Death Money or a set of Chang’s Chinatown trilogy, including Chinatown BeatYear of the Dog, and Red Jade. Karaoke at Asia Roma resumes immediately after the reading and book signing.
