kaya publishes books of the asian pacific diaspora


Gene Oishi and his novel Fox Drum Bebop have been doubly featured on the literary website Bloom!

Fox Drum Bebop is a semi-autobiography of sorts, Oishi’s second work about his experiences in an Arizona internment camp during the Second World War. In this Q&A with Bloom, Oishi talks about his writing process, psychic concepts, and the editorial process, with mention of Kaya Press.

Read Bloom‘s excerpt of Oishi’s novel here.

“The most consistent intelligent wide-ranging committed press I know – Kaya is an example of how to turn ‘small’ books into literary arrows that shoot straight and true into the heart of our culture and (of course) ourselves.”

— Junot Díaz
