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.”

“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
