Jay Caspian Kang comes to powerHouse to talk about his debut novel, The Dead Do Not Improve, a detective story set in present-day San Francisco. Eddie Huang, chef and owner of the Lower East Side eatery BaoHaus, joins him for the discussion.
About the book:
On a residential Bay Area block struggling with the collision of gentrifier condos and longtime residents, stymied recent MFA grad Philip Kim is sleeping the night away when bullets fly through a window in his apartment building and end up killing one of his neighbors. Philip only learns about the murder the next day when bored and Googling himself. But when he gets caught up in the investigation and becomes the focus of an elaborate, violent scheme, he will learn far more than he ever wanted to about his former four-eggs-at-a-time borrowing neighbor Dolores Stone, aka "The Grey Beaver," and her shocking connections to an underworld only a city like this one could create.
