"When she came to my work for an interview, I almost spit in her face," said an Asian American mom about Amy Chua. This week on Apex Express, we explore the Tiger Mom phenomenon. Hear excerpts from Amy Chua's talk with KPFA's Aimee Allison (http://www.kpfa.org/events/evening-amy-chua-%E2%80%9Cbattle-hymn-tiger-mother%E2%80%9D-hosted-aimee-allison). We also bring on professor and Hyphen.com blog editor erin Khue Ninh, who wrote "Amy Chua's Recipe for Disaster and the Externalized Cost of Book Sales" (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/erin-khue-ninh/amy-chuas-recipe-for-disa_b_810607.html) on the Huffinton Post, and KK Aoki Izu, a young Asian American raised in San Francisco by two parents involved in Asian American cultural work. Tune in to a discussion on Asian American parenting and the Tiger Mom.

To thank you for your support, we'll give away the book, and a CD and DVD of Chua in conversation with KPFA's Aimee Allison. Please support Asian American programming, by calling in your donation to 1-800-439-5732 (1-800-HEY-KPFA) or going online to kpfa.org Thursday from 7-8
