Identity and belonging are just two of the many themes Asian-American writers have explored. This edition in the Bloom’s Modern Critical Views series offers fresh critical evaluations of this important body of American literature. Canonical writers such as Maxine Hong Kingston and Amy Tan are discussed in addition to the voices and traditions that have emerged from the United States’ diverse South and East Asian communities. This volume is complemented by a chronology, a bibliography, notes on the contributors, and an introductory essay from master scholar Harold Bloom.
