Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0889614490, Paperback)

Fake ID is a collection of short essays in urban settings. Stuck in coffee shops, bad jobs, SUV's 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.
