Modern Minority

Asian American Literature and Everyday Life

Yoon Sun Lee

  • Presents a fresh examination of canonical and emergent Asian American literature
  • Draws on Lukacs, Jameson, de Certeau, and other cultural critics to show how portraits of the everyday articulate Asian American writers' participation in the project of literary realism
