From Library Journal
Vietnamese American writers Tran, who has published in such journals as Amerasia and Antioch Review, and her coeditors present a volume rich in the voices of people made to straddle two cultures. Over half the pieces have been previously published in journals or collections of Asian American literature, but the emphasis in Watermark is very contemporary and totally Vietnamese. While other anthologies of Vietnamese literature focus on the experience of the Vietnam War, this book focuses mostly on first- or second-generation Vietnamese Americans as they maneuver through American culture. Not to be missed are Andrew Lam's two stories "Grandma's Tales," an unexpectedly droll flight of fancy about the death of a Vietnamese grandmother, and "Show and Tell," the moving portrayal of the introduction of a Vietnamese refugee boy into an eighth-grade American class. The selections fill a gap in Asian American literature as they present a vision both gripping and arresting.AD.E. Perushek, Northwestern Univ. Lib., Evanston, IL
