“A lot has changed since the publication of Aiiieeeee!” writes literary scholar Tara Fickle in the foreword of the third edition of this historic anthology edited by Frank Chin, Jeffery Paul Chan, Lawson Fusao Inada, and Shawn Wong. “But we could also say that a lot has changed because of Aiiieeeee!; or that Aiiieeeee! presciently anticipated these changes, not least by highlighting the vibrant diversity of Asian American experience in the literature.” Forty-five years after its original publication in 1974, this reissue carries the anthology into a contemporary discussion about American literary traditions, featuring fourteen works by authors such as Momoko Iko, Wallace Lin, Toshio Mori, John Okada, and Sam Tagatac. This classic and inspiring collection is a reminder of the essential place Asian American writers hold in the American literary canon.
