During the war, soldiers shared newspapers and magazines. A coed pictured might be elected, 'The Sweetheart of the 116 Infantry,' or 'The Girl Company B would most like to take to the movies.' Election frequently resulted in letters and pinup photos. The Flying Tigers, the l4th Air Force, had Chinese speaking American, Dorothy Yuen, 'in the flesh.' Her dedication, courage, and devotion to duty earned Dottie-as they called her-medals and their utmost respect. Dottie shared their hopes and dreams-and their fears. Sometimes she joined their poker games. Dottie was the girl they dreamed of marrying. Alas, it was not to be. When the war ended, they married the girl back home, and sometimes talked too much about Dottie. To them, the Gentle Tigress remained a star-the real thing. When peace returned, poker became popular. Some Flying Tiger veterans attended annual reunions just to play. None of them realized poker would provide the vehicle to uncover murder.

George Estrada's first book, I Have Tasted the Sweet Mangoes of Cebu, broke the mold of Asian American literature. It was brash, controversial and fresh-and took us on a delirious ride through exotic landscapes, shopping malls and Internet romances. As Flip As I Want to Be is a collection of columns from Estrada's work with the Philippine Times of Las Vegas. Here you will hear the pounding rains of Quezon City, feel the mass exultation of a U.S. citizenship ceremony, ponder the beauty of fake Rolex watches, listen to Tom Cruise speaking in Russian, and meet a Filipino NFL quarterback. You will rock out with a Filipino heavy-metal god, meet a Filipino rapper, and go all-in in a high stakes poker tournament. Saddle up and take another wild ride through the Filipino American experience. 'These commentaries come from a place of searching, of journeying, of process.'-Oscar Peñaranda, author and scholar. 'Estrada's book is written with the incisiveness of a seasoned journalist. I recommend it.'-Prof. Leo Paz, chairman of Philippine Studies, City College of San Francisco. 'Estrada is talented, insightful and tuned into the Filipino American Experience.'-Dorothy and Fred Cordova, co-directors, Filipino American National Historical Society.
