Urban Triage: Race and the Fictions of Multiculturalism written by James Kyung-Jin Lee

 

Urban Triage: Race and the Fictions of Multiculturalism written by James Kyung-Jin Lee

Synopsis:

Among the social trends of the 1980s were two parallel phenomena—an explosion in the production and influence of literary works by people of color, and an economic downturn that brought hard times to America's inner cities and the already disadvantaged communities that lived there. Lee (English and Asian American studies, U. of Texas at Austin) provides a close reading of four fictional works that manifest these parallel trends: Alejandro Morales' The Brick People, John Edgar Wideman's Philadelphia Fire, Hisaye Yamamoto's "A Fire in Fontana," and Tom Wolfe's The Bonfire of the Vanities.
