I have chosen to stay and fight / Margaret Cho


Having watched a tiny bit of Margaret Cho’s comedy in my distant past (my early days in the USA, a decade ago or so), I picked up “I have chosen to stay and fight” when I chanced upon it in the library.

I wasn’t able to get past more than about 30 pages of it. It was a mishmash of incoherent rambling about gender / race bigotry as experienced by Cho. Cho’s ranting sounds like that of a teenager – lacking any firm foundation; primarily aimed at spewing vitriol at those with an opposing view. The end result is that Cho sounds no different than any bigot she’s attacking in her book.

Verdict: Avoid.
