Guiyou Huang traces the history of Asian American literature from the end of World War II to the beginning of the twenty-first century. Huang covers six genres: anthology, autobiography/memoir, drama, fiction, poetry, and short fiction; reviews major historical developments and social movements; explains key literary terms; and offers a narrative, A-to-Z guide of major Asian American writers and their works, plus their critical reception. This guide covers Canadian and U.S. authors with cultural and ethnic origins in East Asia, South Asia, and the Pacific Islands. It begins with a discussion of works written shortly after World War II that explore the personal and political impact of the conflict, such as John Okada's No-No Boy and Hisaye Yamamoto's short fiction. Huang then focuses on the 1980s, when Asian American literature blossomed into a diverse, heterogeneous field characterized by a variety of themes, genres, and styles, and writers with multiple ethnic and cultural backgrounds. He considers the work of novelists Amy Tan and Maxine Hong Kingston, the poets Ai and Agha Shahid Ali, and more than 100 additional authors, including Frank Chin, David Henry Hwang, Jessica Hagedorn, Nora Okja Keller, Bharati Mukherjee, Gish Jen, Chang-rae Lee, Jhumpa Lahiri, Chitra Divakaruni, and Theresa Hak Kyung Cha. Huang points the reader toward further study for individual authors, and his selected bibliography suggests works of a more general nature, including literary criticism and histories, reference works, and collections of essays. Comprehensive though concise, clearly written but richly detailed, The Columbia Guide to Asian American Literature Since 1945 is an invaluable resource.

No-No Boy, John Okada�s only published novel, centers on a Japanese American who refuses to fight for the country that incarcerated him and his people in World War II and, upon release from federal prison after the war, is cast out by his divided community. In 1957, the novel faced a similar rejection until it was rediscovered and reissued in 1976 to become a celebrated classic of American literature. As a result of Okada�s untimely death at age forty-seven, the author�s life and other works have remained obscure. This compelling collection offers the first full-length examination of Okada�s development as an artist, placing recently discovered writing by Okada alongside essays that reassess his lasting legacy. Meticulously researched biographical details, insight from friends and relatives, and a trove of intimate photographs illuminate Okada�s early life in Seattle, military service, and careers as a public librarian and a technical writer in the aerospace industry. This volume is an essential companion to No-No Boy.

As a distinct area of literary study, Asian American literature now enjoys a level of critical recognition that was unimaginable when academic interest in the field began modestly some 25 years ago. Part of this recognition stems from the increasing contributions of Asian American novelists, whose works continue to capture growing levels of popular attention. This reference book provides alphabetically arranged entries for 70 Asian American novelists. Each entry is written by an expert contributor and provides a short biography, a discussion of major works and themes, an overview of the novelist's critical reception, and a bibliography of primary and secondary sources. In addition, the volume concludes with a selected, general bibliography.

Ruth Ozeki erkundet, was es heißt, in diesem Augenblick, genau jetzt, ein Mensch zu sein – »bezaubernd, klug und herzzerreißend« (Junot Díaz). »Hallo! Ich heiße Nao, und ich bin ein Zeitwesen. Weißt du, was ein Zeitwesen ist? Wenn du einen Moment hast, erzähl ich es dir.« So beginnt das Tagebuch des japanischen Teenagers Nao, das eines Tages am Strand einer kanadischen Pazifikinsel angespült wird. Nao schreibt von Einsamkeit und Mobbing, vom depressiven Vater, von ihrer schillernden Urgroßmutter Jiko und den Geheimnissen des Zen. Die Autorin Ruth, die das Tagebuch gefunden hat, ist bald wie gebannt von Naos Notizen und beginnt zugleich um ihr Leben zu fürchten – hat Nao letztlich Selbstmord begangen? Ist sie im Tsunami gestorben? Die Suche nach Antworten gerät für Ruth zu einer magischen Reise durch die Gegenwart, die am Ende auch den Blick auf ihr eigenes Leben verwandelt.

Der zweite unvergessliche Roman der internationalen Bestsellerautorin Es brennt! In jedem der Schlafzimmer hat jemand Feuer gelegt. Fassungslos steht Elena Richardson im Bademantel und den Tennisschuhen ihres Sohnes draußen auf dem Rasen und starrt in die Flammen. Ihr ganzes Leben lang hatte sie die Erfahrung gemacht, »dass Leidenschaft so gefährlich ist wie Feuer«. Deshalb passte sie so gut nach Shaker Heights, den wohlhabenden Vorort von Cleveland, Ohio, in dem der Außenanstrich der Häuser ebenso geregelt ist wie das Alltagsleben seiner Bewohner. Ihr Mann ist Partner einer Anwaltskanzlei, sie selbst schreibt Kolumnen für die Lokalzeitung, die vier halbwüchsigen Kinder sind bis auf das jüngste, Isabel, wohlgeraten. Doch es brennt. Elenas scheinbar unanfechtbares Idyll – alles Asche und Rauch?
