The Forbidden Stitch: An Asian American Women's Anthology written by Shirley Geok-lin Lim et al.


Fiction. "The book represents a fine diversity of Asian American women who may claim their native soil in Oakland or Tucson or Manila or New Delhi. These writers and artists, many of them young or publishing for the first time, are breaking down a barrier to make a statement. Wherever they live, in an Asian ghetto or as the only Asian family in a suburban subdivision or Midwest college town, they are dealing with the majority culture daily. They are, in many cases, living with spouses or children who don't know/ don't care about/ for the Asian culture the woman may tenaciously cling to" -Mayumi Tsutakawa, From the Introduction.


The first and best Asian American women's anthology, edited by Shirley Geok-lin Lim and Mayumi Tsutakawa

Library Journal

Seventy Asian American women writing in English have contributed to this anthology of poetry, stories, art, and reviews. All are emerging authors and artists, some widely exhibited and published (e.g., Diana Chang), but none with the fame of Maxine Hong Kingston or Bette Bao Lord. Their concerns touch all women yet are overlaid with further concerns of being outsiders and of facing divided duties to one's sex, one's country (old or new), and oneself. The 16 reviews of better-known works (e.g., Cathy Song's Picture Bride , Elaine Kim's Asian-American Literature ) are useful. A very attractive book recommended for libraries specializing in Asian works.-- Kitty Chen Dean, Nassau Coll., Garden City, N.Y.
