Meet the Author: The Tamago Stories

  • Pao Arts Center 99 Albany Street Boston, MA, 02111 United States (map)

BCNC is proud to host author Vincent Yee for the first book signing for his second book, “The Tamago Stories.”

This is a collection of eight riveting, contemporary Asian American short stories spanning a multitude of genres from crime-action to family drama, legal and medical situations, romance comedy and even sci-fi. The Asian American characters are a blend of Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Taiwanese and Thai to show an Asian American intersectionality in storytelling.

On the heels of an amazing summer where we saw Asian representation in film from “Crazy Rich Asians” to “Searching”, “The Tamago Stories,” continues to show Asian American characters in contemporary and dramatic stories where they are the heroes.

Though there will be a small number of books on hand, it is recommended that you buy “The Tamago Stories” or Vincent’s first novel, “The Purple Heart” beforehand for it to be signed.


About the Author: Vincent Yee was born in Boston, Massachusetts. For most of his career, he has worked for a number of Fortune 100 companies in various managerial roles. At all other times, he has a vision… “to use the power of fiction to portray Asian American men and women positively in the media.” His first novel, “The Purple Heart,” is a story about love and courage. Vincent Yee was a former National President for the National Association of Asian American Professionals (NAAAP). He’s also been known to create artistic culinary dishes for friends. He now lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts and is planning his third book project.
