Reading the literatures of Asian America by Shirley Lim( Book )

11 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 836 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the recent proliferation of critically acclaimed literature by Asian American writers, this groundbreaking collection of essays provides a unique resource for students, scholars, and the general reading public. The homogeneity implied by the term "Asian American" is replaced in this volume with the rich diversity of highly disparate peoples. Languages, religions, races and cultural and national backgrounds. Examining a century of Asian American literature from the late 19th century up through the contemporary experimental drama of Ping Chong, the contributors address the work of writers w
The forbidden stitch : an Asian American women's anthology( Book )

8 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Winner of the American Book Award, this book represents, as Mayumi Tsutakawa puts it in the introduction, '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.' Co-editor Shirley Geok-lin Lim adds: 'the voices found in The Forbidden Stitch are so plural as to cast doubt on the unity of the anthology ... If the stitch is multi-colored and complexly knotted, still it holds together a dazzling quilt.' This ground-breaking first Asian American women's anthology breaks barriers of invisibility that Asian American women have faced. Among the more than 80 writers and artists are Mei-mei Berssenbrugge, Diana Chang, Marilyn Chin, Jessica Hagedorn, Mayuni Oda, Nellie Wong, Merle Woo, and Mitsuye Yamada."--PUBLISHER

Joss and gold by Shirley Lim( Book )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This novel opens to find Li An, a rebellious young woman of Chinese descent, riding her motorcyle through the hot, congested streets of Kuala Lumpur. With her group of Malay, Indian, and Chinese friends, she debates Malaysia's future. But her work - and her heart - are devoted to the study of English literature, a legacy of colonial culture. The conflicts inherent in Li An's life, and in her country, are rising to crisis point: as Malaysia approaches the volatile elections of 1969, Li An's marriage to a traditional Chinese man is threatened by her sexually charged friendship with Chester, a long-haired American Peace Corps volunteer. Forced together by election-night riots, they finally give in to their attraction - with results neither of them had imagined."

Two dreams : new and selected stories by Shirley Lim( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The stories of Shirley Geok-lin Lim reflect the complex mosaic of her world.

Two Dreams draws together the best of Lim's short fiction from nearly three decades, most of it never before available in the United States."--BOOK JACKET
