kaya publishes books of the asian pacific diaspora


Martin Wong highlighted Amarnath Ravva’s AMERICAN CANYON last week in the Imprint Culture Lab’s book club. Noting that the experimental memoir is Kaya’s first full-color publication, Wong comments on the completeness of the work–a sparse narrative complemented by images. He characterizes the memoir as equal parts observation, emotion, and exploration, and summarizes the writing as follows:

“While the cool tone can seem oddly detached for such a personal moment, the eyelid-peeling attention to detail reveals uncommon engagement and perhaps even an otherworldly view.”
