Surveying twelve texts produced over the course of a century, this book examines the politics of domesticity in Asian American women's literature. While it takes on some of the common tropes of Asian American literary criticism, such as interracial romance, the conflicts of assimilation, and the mother-daughter relationship, the focus on the white American woman who mediates the relationship of the Asian American woman with America forces us to rethink the familiar.
Seung Ah Oh is a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Humanities at Yonsei University.
