Beschreibung

"Informed by her intimate knowledge of Asian American culture as well as minority discourses, feminist thought, and contemporary literary theory, Sau-ling Wong writes about Asian American literature with grace and lucidity. Her work is absorbing not only because of its insightful interpretations and careful contextualizations, but also because it gives us a glimpse of her own luminous intelligence and passionate respect for the writers and their works."--Elaine Kim, author of "Asian American Literature"
