Hoarders of all things Asian  

 Lindsey Owyang got an excellent degree in literature and French, which makes her an overqualified receptionist at a vegan magazine.  She lives with her grandmother, Pau Pau, who she thinks she knows all about.  

 Lindsey is also looking for a good relationship, but is worried about men who are "hoarders of all things Asian."  She has categorized them because they want a little "china doll" not a person.  So she is not sure about Mike at work.  She checks him against her list of hoarder qualities and can't decide.

In The Dim Sum of All Things by Kim Wong Kelter, Lindsey has to learn who is a hoarder and who is not.  Also does she really know her grandmother, who might have had a life beyond being a grandmother.
