Maxine Hong Kingston

Helena Grice

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Since the publication of The Woman Warrior in 1976, Maxine Hong Kingston has gained a reputation as one of the most popular -- and controversial -- writers in the Asian American literary tradition. In this volume Grice traces Kingston's development as a writer and cultural activist through both ethnic and feminist discourses, investigating her novels, occasional writings and her two-book 'life-writing project.' Maxine Hong Kingston will be of value to students and academics researching in the areas of diaspora writing, contemporary American and Asian-American fiction, as well as feminist and postcolonial literature.
