Fiction. "The book represents a fine diversity of Asian American women who may claim their native soil in Oakland or Tucson or Manila or New Delhi. These writers and artists, many of them young or publishing for the first time, are breaking down a barrier to make a statement. Wherever they live, in an Asian ghetto or as the only Asian family in a suburban subdivision or Midwest college town, they are dealing with the majority culture daily. They are, in many cases, living with spouses or children who don't know/ don't care about/ for the Asian culture the woman may tenaciously cling to" -Mayumi Tsutakawa, From the Introduction.
The first and best Asian American women's anthology, edited by Shirley Geok-lin Lim and Mayumi Tsutakawa
