Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Part Asian, 100% Hapa is a photo album of the twenty-first-century global village. Hapa is Hawaiian slang for someone whose mixed racial heritage includes Asian or Pacific Islander ancestry. Hapa artist and writer Fulbeck decided to "increase mainstream Hapa awareness" by photographing Hapas of diverse backgrounds and ages and asking each participant how he or she copes with the daily query, "What are you?" Sean Lennon kicks things off with a smart and irreverent foreword, and Fulbeck's simply composed portraits are profoundly evocative. Each person's ethnic background reads like a poem hinting at dramatic journeys and improbable love: Japanese, French, Chinese, Irish, Swedish, Sioux, Thai, Mexican, Irish, and Native American (Yaqui). And their pithy handwritten personal statements are wry and wicked, sweet and tangy.

This book is really quite amazing. It brings a few good questions to mind, as well as realizations. It is interesting to read the responses to the question "What am I", especially from the children who all have a beautiful, raw way of expressing themselves, some in pictures, some in scribbles and some in blatently obvious answers, as if the kid would look at you and say "what am I, I'm a kid, duh" It really makes you think twice about asking people "what are you".

A friend recommended this book, and it just arrived from Amazon. It's a picture book of a few hundred people of various mixed race. I highly recommend it for anybody that's ever asked a person of mixed race "what are you?"

It's already spawned a couple of interesting conversations with my wife and four-year-old daughter. Even though she's only four, she's already encountered the stupidity of strangers and well-meaning-ignoramus-friends as they question whether or not I'm really her father (I'm hapa and she has her mom's lily-white complexion and blue eyes/blonde hair).

This is an amazing piece of work: Simple yet sublime. For those of us, especially in CA, fortunate to live in a multi-cultural environment this book speaks volumes and provides deep, yet subtle, insight into "the great melting pot of America".

Part Asian, 100% Hapa shines a much needed spotlight on the changing face of America.

Though multiracial individuals comprise at least 7 percent of the U.S. population, according to the 2000 Census, people who are mixed or "hapa" nevertheless tend to be ignored in society's ongoing conversation about race and race relations. Kip Fulbeck thoughtfully puts a stop to this wallflower phenomenon by placing the faces of mixed-race people front and center in this intriguing and artistic new book.

The old proverb is true: a picture does tell a thousand words. Here, each face relays an unflinching, often fascinating tale about its owner. The result is a candid glimpse into a growing population, and also, a generous and quite touching photographic exploration of the feelings, observations, and struggles that make each of us -- in the end -- universally connected.

This book is great for all of the Hapa's of the world. The photos are real people, no airbrushing, no runway models. They are beautiful people of mixed race. My daughter is a Hapa so I wanted her to grow up with the book in the house so she can be proud of her mix.

i felt a very immediate and personal connection to this book, being hapa myself, and think that it is a must have for any hapa, young or old. however i also think this is an amazing book, period. it is funny and engaging and beautiful and something that anyone who has ever been pigeonholed or struggled with identity(which i would guess is pretty much everyone) can relate to.

it is hard to sufficiently explain how great and filled with 'hapa pride' this book made me feel, so you will just have to buy it.

Kip Fulbeck has created a community for those of us who identify ourselves as wholly members of our communities, but who are often not perceived by others as fully included. We are the exotic, the other, the mixed -- the products of the melting pot. We are as different from one another, as alike, as complex, as unique, as are other people of other backgrounds -- which is to say, as much as is true for anyone (of any ethnic heritage), we hapa can not be defined by our ethnic heritage, nor can we dismiss the great influence our varied heritage has exerted on our personal identities. It is lovely to have these truths acknowledged. Thank you, Kip Fulbeck. This work of art has been carefully crafted, and is deeply meaningful. While some of the references -- visual and otherwise -- may not be fully understood by those who have not experienced life as a hapa, or as a hapa of a particular generation, nevertheless I think that everyone will discover something new and beautiful within these pages. This is a rare gem. Not to be missed!

This is a beautiful book!! I cried when I first looked through this book, I'm half filipino and half white/american... it was so amazing to see people who look like me. I found the pictures and the answers to "who are you" very moving and poignant, it was incredible to see my eyes staring back at me from the pictures. I love-love this book, I would recommend it to anyone who is HAPA or has HAPA children.
