Praise For…

A comprehensive collection, introducing each author with deep insight into global history and immigration narratives. . . . Kori has an excellent range . . . showing the incredible diversity of the Korean American voice. -AsianWeek

"This is a splendid and useful anthology, tastefully deployed and edited with historical range, literary verve, and critical care. The generational waves and generic diversity of Korean American writing is captured in a way that leaves the future open to a range of forms and possibilities." -Rob Wilson, author of Reimagining the American Pacific: From South Pacific to Bamboo Ridge and Beyond

"Kori provides a tantalizing . . . sampling of works by 16 prominent Korean-American writers of the past century-many of whom continue to write today." -Barbara Lloyd Mitchell, The Seattle Times

"[Kori] is a fine introduction to the richness of Korean American fiction. The individual contributions offer readers complex, artistic, passionate, and revealing moments." -Tanya Kim, The Pacific Reader
