About the Book

This anthology of Asian Canadian writing celebrates the twentieth anniversary of Ricepaper magazine, one of the few publications dedicated to literary writing by Asians outside of Asia. It includes new work by such writers as Joy Kogawa, author of the classic Canadian novel Obasan; Sky Lee, author of Disappearing Moon Café; and Fred Wah, the former poet laureate of Canada. There's also contemporary, cutting-edge fiction from writers such as Doretta Lau, Yasuko Thanh, and Kim Fu, author of For Today I Am a Boy.

AlliterAsian is an intriguing collection that reveals the beguiling new literary traditions of the Asian diaspora.
