But Still, Like Air, I'll Rise: New Asian American Plays
Title: But Still, Like Air, I'll Rise: New Asian American Plays
Edited by Velina Hasu Houston
In this path breaking volume, Velina Hasu Houston gathers together eleven plays that speak in "hybridized, unique American voices of Asian descent - and often dissent." These writers resist the bigotry that targets them solely as people of color as well as the homogenizing tendencies of a multiculturalism that fails to recognize the varied make-up of Asian American. Anthologized for the first time, these plays testify to the complexity of Asian American experience while demonstrating the different styles and thematic concerns of individual playwrights.
