In her award-winning book The Woman Warrior, Maxine Hong Kingston created an entirely new form—an exhilarating blend of autobiography and mythology, of world and self, of hot rage and cool analysis. First published in 1976, it has become a classic in its innovative portrayal of multiple and intersecting identities—immigrant, female, Chinese, American. As a girl, Kingston lives in two confounding worlds: the California to which her parents have immigrated and the China of her mother’s “talk stories.” The fierce and wily women warriors of her mother’s tales clash jarringly with the harsh reality of female oppression out of which they come. Kingston’s sense of self emerges in the mystifying gaps in these stories, which she learns to fill with stories of her own. A warrior of words, she forges fractured myths and memories into an incandescent whole, achieving a new understanding of her family’s past and her own present.

Als Landreaux Iron bei einem tragischen Jagdunfall Dusty, den Sohn seiner Nachbarn, tötet, beschließen er und seine Frau, ihren jüngsten Sohn LaRose bei Dustys Familie aufwachsen zu lassen. Ergeben beugt sich LaRose dieser indianischen Tradition, die zu aller Überraschung ungeahnte, tröstliche Dinge bewirkt. Alles könnte sich zum Guten wenden, wäre da nicht einer, der mit Landreaux eine alte Rechnung offen hat und seine große Chance auf Rache wittert. „Ein Meisterwerk der amerikanischen Literatur, das bleiben wird.“ Booklist „Erdrich trägt, wie Faulkner, das dunkle Wissen ihres Landes in sich. Sie zählt zu den besten amerikanischen Schriftstellern.“ Philip Roth, New York Times „Wie Toni Morrison, Tolstoi oder Steinbeck zeichnet Erdrich ihre Charaktere voller Liebe und erzählt von ihnen, ohne je über sie zu richten.“ San Francisco Chronicle.

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'. The publication of The Woman Warrior not only propelled Kingston into the mainstream literary limelight, but also precipitated a vicious and ongoing controversy in Asian American letters over the authenticity -- or fakery -- of her cultural references. Grice traces the debates through the appearance of China Men (1981), as well as the novels, Tripmaster Monkey (1989) and her most recent work, The Fifth Book of Peace. Maxine Hong Kingston will be of value to students and academics researching in the areas of diaspora writing, contemporary American and Asian- Amercianfiction, as well as feminist and postcolonial literature.
