    This thesis reconsiders the meaning of category and identity of Asian American in a capitalist society. While there has been a great deal of book reviews on Free Food For Millionaires, yet research remains marginal. Recent scholarship has been inclined to consider the universality of Asian American Literature in terms of the deconstruction of boundaries. Asian American have been stereotyped and misplaced under the category of Asian American because of their distinct externals. Yet, categorizing Asian Americans within such stereotypes or archetypes is problematic. The term of 'Asian American' which empowered them politically and economically in American Society, has been transformed and it trapped Asian American into certain path to success. Min jin Lee, in Free Food For Millionaires, explores Asian American woman's struggle to enroll to the American mainstream. The protagonist Casey Han, a 1.5 generation Korean American woman, encounters racial and sexual discriminations while she struggles to be the part of mainstream. While revealing her ambivalent attitude, she realizes that she is inseparable to the Korean American identity. In parallel with describing Casey Han's attempts, addressing the current status of Asian American Literature has been also discussed by the author. This novel is concluded by giving an open-ended conclusion, which implicates the unnecessity of stereotyped categorization. This conclusion to be drown here is that this novel investigates the possibility of universality in both Asian American and Asian American Literature.
