"This extraordinary collection of new voices is infused with the beauty and power of transformation. While each sensuous, intimate piece further illuminates the landscape of Korean America, woven together they rework the borders of nation, home, and self so that the very definition of 'America' is challenged and changed."-Nora Okja Keller, author of Comfort Woman and Fox Girl "Echoes Upon Echoes is evidence that, once again, the news of the demise of the English language is highly exaggerated; it is alive and well-albeit in the midst of fierce transformation and vibrant renewal-in these fine stories and poems by a new generation of Korean American writers. Editors Elaine Kim and Laura Kang should be commended for assembling such an impressive array of unexpectedly diverse and original writings. This anthology once and for all puts to rest the myth that Korean America is a singular experience."-Robert Ji-Song Ku, Professor of English and Asian American Studies, City University of New York, Hunter College "Echoes upon Echoes displays the vivid spectrum of the Korean American voice."-The Asian Reporter "...the works have a universality about them that gives them an added dimension of value...this material will appeal most to experienced readers."-Kliatt
