Format: Paperback
I think this is a great book, one that is going on groundbreaking turf. Yes, the table of contents is a bit confusing, as was the choice to put he writers in alphabetical order but the actual contents is what matters. I read the book in its entirety within three days and I was in love with many of the writers, in fact I am online at the moment in search of some more writing of the same genre but there is none! I borrowed my copy from the public library and I am dreading the day I must return it.I'm hoping to find something close that can ease my comfort but there are so few anthologies of the minority's minority. It is quite refreshing. I do wish there were more women writers included but you can't have everything.

This is a collection of gay and lesbian Asian-American fiction. Whereas "Q&A" and Russell Leong's book have already opened the doors for gay Asian-Am non-fiction, there are still too few venues for the fictional counterpart. This anthology fills that void. Proof of its worth is that many of these writers have gone on to have whole novels published. Despite the need for this book, I see problems. It has this boring cover that automatically makes the book look used. I don't know if the publishing company has limited resources or if they want readers of all races and sexualities to not be turned off by the book or what. But the drab cover made me think it would contain drab writing. The editors have a 1.5 paged intro which proves they hardly had any vision for this book. The book is littered with photography and art that is not interesting in the slightest. The table of contents is confusing. There's just little here that would make me sit down and read this rather large book. My copy is gonna become as second-hand as it already looked the first day I bought it.
