Editorial Reviews


Editor Russell Leong has managed to weave a diverse and thoughtful selection of pieces--personal essays, articles of literary and film criticism, roundtable discussions, and works of fiction and poetry--into a provocative exploration of personal experience and the construction of Asian American gay and lesbian identity....a valuable contribution in the fields of both queer cultural studies and Asian American studies.... This book is the first of its kind, and for that alone it is noteworthy. The diverse approaches, good writing, and the inclusion of both lesbian and gay experience, however, make this a fascinating and informative read as well.
Lesbian Review of Books

In all respects the anthology is informative, carving out an Asian American gay and lesbian culture and community that has been active and that will no longer be silenced either by racism or homophobia. While there are anthologies of Asian American gay experiences that precede this one, this is the first to deal with both gay and lesbian experiences.

Format: Paperback
This book is pretty good; I actually enjoyed it more than the more-popular "Q&A" anthology. This anthology features articles from the leading gay and lesbian API academics in the country. I purposely say "API" because the book includes a chapter on gay Polynesians. There's gender parity in the articles, or at least the editor is mindful of not making another androcentric book. I think all gay Asian-Americans should get their hands on a copy of this book. It's neither hyperacademic babble nor another cheesy poetry book. It would also be a great resource for ethnic studies majors. I think straight API allies will enjoy it as well. I recommend this book. It's a keeper.
