Asian American and Asian Canadian Short Story Cycles

 

Rocio G Davis

This study analyzes the manner in which important Asian American and Asian Canadian writers appropriate the short-story cycle as a tool for both self-representation and empowerment. This work specifically analyzes a number of major works by writers such as Amy Tan, Rohinton Mistry, Sara Suleri, Garrett Hongo, Terry Watada, Sylvia Watanabe, MG Vassanji, and Wayson Choy, among others.

"Transcultural Reinventions deserves notice for its commitment to  a significant critical project."
