BINDERY: Penguin Classics Asian American Writers Series / Elaine Castillo and Karen Tei Yamashita

SEE EVENT DETAILS
The Bindery hosts a special afternoon event with Elaine Castillo (America is Not the Heart) and Karen Tei Yamashita (I Hotel), in celebration of four new titles in the Penguin Classics Asian American Writers Series. Some of the most influential Asian Americans writing today supplement each title with introductions and forewords. For the contributors, these books have always been classics:

The Hanging On Union Square by H.T. Tsiang; introduction by Hua Hsu, edited with an afterword and notes by Floyd Cheung

East Goes West by Younghill Kang; foreword by Alexander Chee, afterword and notes by Sunyoung Lee

No-No Boy by John Okada; introduction by Karen Tei Yamashita

America Is in the Heart by Carlos Bulosan; foreword by Elaine Castillo and introduction by E. San Juan, Jr.

The authors of these Classics have all endured comparisons to more well-known white authors in order to approximate their own genius; Kang’s East Goes West has been compared to Whitman and Nabokov, Bulosan’s America Is in the Heart to Steinbeck. Yet each author’s work uniquely acts as a powerful touchstone for the immigrant experience in America.
