Tilting the Continent:
Southeast Asian American Writing
This anthology of American writers originally from Southeast Asia includes poems and short stories by 41 “emerging” writers in English. The book has been divided into themes such as “Family” and “Eating.” Some of the writers are already well known, and the others, with one or two exceptions, have already been published. All the writers deal with making a life in the US while recognizing their differences and traumas.
