Kissing Outside The Lines: A True Story of Love and Race and Happily Ever After is a book by actress Diane Farr of Rescue Me and NUMB3RS fame that follows her love story with her husband and dealing with the prejudice of her dating an Asian American man.

It was published on May 17, 2011.

Tropes for the book:

  • Culture Clash: Diane is Italian/Irish while her husband is Chinese American, which causes issues for their parents as they don't think they don't really have anything in common.
  • Maligned Mixed Marriage: Discussed as Diane recounts the problems she and her husband faced when they were dating, both from strangers and from their family, as their parents didn't know how to talk about the relationship.
    • Luckily for her and her husband, their families come around and accept their relationship and the couple are still married with three children.

How well does it match the trope?
