Coming of Age in America: A Multicultural Anthology

Coming of Age in America: A Multicultural Anthology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

By turns touching and hilarious, Coming of Age in America gathers together writers from fifteen different ethnic groups who, through their fiction, explore the terrain we all traverse as we come of age, no matter our race, ethnicity, gender, or class.

With over twenty short stories and fiction excerpts by noted authors such as Julia Alvarez and Frank Chin, Dorothy Allison and Adam Schwartz, Reginald McNight and Tobias Wolff, Coming of Age in America shows that our common experiences are more binding than our differences are divisive. Since its initial publication in 1994, Coming of Age in America has evolved from a groundbreaking collection of underrepresented voices into a timeless album of unforgettable literature. A wonderfully readable collection, this is a marvelous resource for those looking for stories that illustrate the convergence of cultural experience and literature.

Synopsis:

The acne and ecstasy of adolescence, a multicultural collection of short stories and fiction excerpts that Library Journal calls "wonderfully diverse from the standard fare".
