Description

"This is a major compilation of Asian American authors, some native-born, others immigrants, refugees, or expatriates. While some of the writers are well known (e.g., Ved Mehta, Meena Alexander), most are emerging voices. The volume is divided into two parts: poetry and fiction. Poets are represented by one or two poems; short story writers by just one piece. Each author contributed a "statement," whether biographical, literary, or philosophical, that appears before his or her work. The editor (professor emeritus, liberal studies and India Studies Program, Sonoman State Univ.) has provided more traditional biographical information at the back of the book. The writers describe a wide range of experience in a great variety of styles." -Debbie Bogenschutz, Cincinnati Technical Coll.
