Full description for Fake I.D.
This is a collection of short essays set in urban environments. Stuck in coffee shops, bad jobs, SUVs, and the United States of America, Tamaki's characters explore and resist social constructions, while seeking sanity and some form of definition. In the tradition of her earlier work, Tamaki mixes social commentary with dry wit, poking fun, not simply at racial, cultural, and sexual prejudice, but also at the ridiculous way these stereotypes play out in everyday life. In "Fake ID", identity is not a welcome social construct, but an ugly sweater society gives you for your birthday that doesn't fit, and clashes with everything you own.
