Itchy Brown Girl Seeks Employment is an ironic Curriculum Vitae where life and work experiences one wouldn't want a potential employer to know are highlighted using vulnerability, wit, observation, and candor. Ella deCastro Baron a first generation Asian American woman challenged by her parents' faith, inherited sickness, and questionable life choices shares of beginning and ending relationships, restlessness, miracles, prejudice, entitlement, and community. She leaves it up to the reader to decide, after assessing her background, education, professional experience, fieldwork, high (and low) achievements, if she is someone worth investing in.

From the Inside Flap:

"Cunningly conceived while eluding precise description, Itchy Brown Girl Seeks Employment is a re-imagined CV featuring memoir, poetry, letters, and an ongoing narrative about being Filipino, battling illness, daring to love God, and inhabiting a problematic world. It is a brave, evocative book." -Harold Jaffe, Author of Terror-dot-Gov, Jesus Coyote, and False Positive. Editor-in-chief, Fiction International."Many books traverse the rocky terrain of ethnic identity, while others swim across the salty sea of spirituality. Itchy Brown Girl Seeks Employment is the very rare book seeking to honor both, and it does so with bare-sometimes uncomfortable-honesty, courage, creativity, insight and hope." -James Choung, Author of True Story.
