The paper discusses "The Accidental Asian," a collection of autobiographical essays describing the author's experience as an Asian- American and his views regarding cultural identity. The paper shows Liu's belief that although cultural identity does exist, the connection between race or cultural belonging and the individual is not altogether definite. The paper discusses how, although Liu looks Chinese and shares a cultural background with his people, he does not feel that this makes him any less American.
