Our old friend and neighbor Kim Wong Keltner is coming back for a visit, and we hope you'll help us welcome her warmly.  Her latest book is Tiger Babies Strike Back: How I Was Raised by a Tiger Mom But Could Not Be Turned To The Dark Side (Morrow).  Traversing the choppy seas of American and Chinese traditions, Keltner dives into the difficulties facing women today--Chinese-American and otherwise. At once deeply relevant and playfully honest, Tiger Babies Strike Back combines personal anecdotes and tough love advice for a humorous, provocative look at how our families shape--and sometimes shake--our personal foundations.

For a teaser, check out this lovely exclusive essay Kim sent to us.
