Realuyo's point is well taken in this offering of diverse voices and languages; New York City is a chorus within a chorus. This book does not pretend to encapsulate NYC, it simply opens up a window into the landscape that frequently finds itself in the imaginations of writers around the world. Reading this anthology is like riding a crowded subway car, you share a common space with the rest of the passengers without necessarily leaving from or arriving to the same (political/social/historical) platforms. And it's a trip well worth taking.

Lisa Preston-whatever-her-name-is obviously didn't take the time out to even read the book -- she just looked at the font and compared it to the more visually exciting one of the Nuyorican anthology without sitting back and taking in the content. Things don't have to be written in big, bold, unique lettering to hit the heart, and if she were Asian,living in NY (not Scarsdale), and intelligent enough to appreciate these new voices, she would know that the NuyorAsian anthology represents a fresh mix of the traditionally under-represented yet thriving underground communities of Asian American writers and artists. Read the book. You'll like it.

Format: Paperback
Bino A. Realuyo presents a diverse collection of Pan-Asian artists and writers representing and influenced by New York. The anthology explores the new genre of Asian writers spanning from immigrants connected to their homeland, to a new generation of American-born Asians dealing with a contrasting identity. Many of the writers have had their own books published, others are seen here for the first time.
For those that enjoy this anthology I also highly recommend "The Open Boat", edited by Garrett Hongo.
