kaya publishes books of the asian pacific diaspora


A very thoughtful note on the textual hybridity in QM Zhang’s memoir ACCOMPLICE TO MEMORY by David DeGusta in The Massachusetts Review: “The term ‘hybrid’ is applied mostly to memoirs with more than the usual amount of invention, or to novels with less. Here, though, is a book that realizes the true potential of a hybrid approach as few others do, to be placed on your shelf next to Claudia Rankine’s Don’t Let Me Be Lonely and Kazim Ali’s Silver Road. Its combination of memoir, fiction, history, and photography captures how complex and partial any understanding of a loved one necessarily is.”
