A century of Asian American writing has generated a forceful cascade of bold words. This anthology covers Asian American writing of all genres, sixty authors from the early years of the twentieth century to the present. Chinese, Filipino/a, Japanese, Korean, South Asian, and Southeast Asian American writers are all well represented, with an equal split between male and female writers. The collection is divided into four genre sections -- memoir, fiction, poetry, and drama. Each section opens with an introductory essay from an expert in that genre: Meena Alexander on memoir, Gary Pak on fiction, Eileen Tabios on poetry, and Roberta Uno on drama.The selections depict the complex realities and wide range of experiences of Asians in the United States. They illuminate the writers' creative responses to such diverse issues as resistance, aesthetic craft, biculturalism, sexuality, gender relations, racism, war, diaspora, and family.Bold Words: A Century of Asian American Writing, was published 2001 under ISBN 9780813529653 and ISBN 0813529654.
