kaya publishes books of the asian pacific diaspora


Asian American Literature Fans on Livejournal aims “to illuminate the wide ranging and expansive terrain of Asian American and Asian Anglophone literatures.” Back in April, they sang the praises of Gene Oishi’s FOX DRUM BEBOP and our press as a whole.

The review emphasizes the book’s profundity, “Oishi is quite keen on elaborating upon not only the internment and its after effects, but the larger multicultural tensions that embroiled California throughout that period.” The review goes on to describe publications like FOX DRUM BEBOP as “more than just fictions… [they] constitute an archive of witnessing and of potential healing.”
