Description

Introducing 20 writers of Asian descent, this text invites the writers to comment on their work and to speak openly about aesthetics, politics, and the difficulties they have encountered in pursuing a writing career. They address, among other issues, the expectations attached to the label ""Asian American"", the burden of representation shouldered by ethnic artists, and the different demands of ""mainstream"" and ethnic audiences.
