The first full-length biography of the first published Asian North American fiction writer portrays a gifted, unsung woman and a world rarely seen in anything other than stereotypes. The eldest daughter of a Chinese mother and British father, Edith Maude Eaton was born in England in 1865. Her family moved to Quebec in the early 1870s; she was removed from school at age ten to help support her parents and twelve siblings. In the 1880s and 1890s she worked as a stenographer, journalist, and fiction writer in Montreal, often writing under the name she has come to be known by, Sui Sin Far (Water Lily). She lived briefly in Jamaica and then, from 1898 to 1912, in the United States. Today Sui Sin Far is finally being rediscovered as part of American literature and history. She presented portraits of turn-of-the-century Chinese with an insider's sympathy. She gave voice to Chinese American women and children, breaking the stereotypes of silence, invisibility, and "bachelor society."

Cities Of Others

Asian American literature abounds with complex depictions of American cities as spaces that reinforce racial segregation and prevent interactions across boundaries of race, culture, class, and gender. However, in Cities of Others, Xiaojing Zhou uncovers a much different narrative, providing the most comprehensive examination to date of how Asian American writers - both celebrated and overlooked - depict urban settings. Zhou goes beyond examining popular portrayals of Chinatowns by paying equal attention to life in other parts of the city. Her innovative and wide-ranging approach sheds new light on the works of Chinese, Filipino, Indian, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese American writers who bear witness to a variety of urban experiences and reimagine the American city as other than a segregated nation-space. Drawing on critical theories on space from urban geography, ecocriticism, and postcolonial studies, Zhou shows how spatial organization shapes identity in the works of Sui Sin Far, Bienvenido Santos, Meena Alexander, Frank Chin, Chang-rae Lee, Karen Tei Yamashita, and others. She also shows how the everyday practices of Asian American communities challenge racial segregation, reshape urban spaces, and redefine the identity of the American city. From a reimagining of the nineteenth-century flaneur figure in an Asian American context to providing a framework that allows readers to see ethnic enclaves and American cities as mutually constitutive and transformative, Zhou gives us a provocative new way to understand some of the most important works of Asian American literature.

The first thematic series published for American literature, THE WADSWORTH THEMES IN AMERICAN LITERATURE SERIES is currently comprised of 21 themes spanning the time period normally covered in the two-semester American literature survey course—1492 to the present. Each carefully edited booklet centers on a core issue of the period with attention given to the development of key themes. Each thematic booklet offers an introductory contextual essay, a variety of literary perspectives, headnotes and footnotes, along with a variety of visual elements. Martha J. Cutter—a scholar of considerable range and achievement who now teaches at the University of Connecticut—edits the sequence of booklets dealing with the modern era, 1910-1945, a period of pivotal importance in American history and culture. The American empire came into its own in this era, recognized its muscles, and began to flex them—in ways productive and (at times) destructive. Cutter charts the struggle between the sexes in a compelling range of texts. The subject of class and its impact on how people viewed themselves is explored in a selection of works that deal with issues of class, money, and power. The so-called New Negro Renaissance occurred during this period, a revival and consolidation of writing in a variety of genres by African Americans. And, as they must, literary selections from both world wars occupy a central place in one thematic booklet.

New Women is an anthology of short fiction written by Canadian women between 1900 and 1920. The carefully selected stories by writers such as L.M. Montgomery (of Anne of Green Gables fame), Nellie McClung and Marjorie Pickthall provide dramatic and imaginiative glimpses of Canadian society and of the women who lived during those momentous years. In this era of transformation, Canadians were experiencing the Great War, industrialization, urbanization and immigration on an unprecedented scale. Women were fighting for the vote and equal rights. Accordingly, the stories show us women in the grip of labour and domestic issues - domestic oppression, labour exploitation, conflict between family and employment obligations. When one reads Kit Coleman on the life of a woman journalist or J.G. Sime on the life of a female munitions worker, one is astonished at how little the challenges of women's lives have changed between 1900 and 1990. New Women is a timely contribution to understanding our heritage from the unique perspective of Canadian women writers. It is a pleasurable and informative collection that will prove useful to students, teachers and everyone interested in our social history.
