Asian American Women Writers

Synopsis

"The writings of Asian-American women - whether born in America or transplanted from China, Japan, the Philippines, or India - have continued to reflect the complexities of their authors' cultural milieus, the stories set in places as disparate as Japanese internment camps in Arizona, flamboyant Manila under Marcos, and the Chinatowns of California. Likewise, these writings have continued to reflect the ambiguities of their authors' identities, the tensions of a female consciousness caught between cultures. The very voices of these stories - from Wong's polite autobiographical "she" and Yamamoto's "double telling" to the "splinters" in Kingston's voice and Hagedorn's polyglot - tell of the richness of writing by Asian-American women thus far."
