As we approach the twenty-first century, biracialism and biculturalism are becoming increasingly common.  Skin color and place of birth are no longer reliable signifiers of one's identity or origin.  Simple questions like What are you? and Where are you from? aren't answered--they are discussed.  These eighteen essays, joined by a shared sense of duality, address the difficulties of not fitting into and the benefits of being part of two worlds.  Through the lens of personal experience, they offer a broader spectrum of meaning for race and culture.  And in the process, they map a new ethnic terrain that transcends racial and cultural division.

From the Back Cover:

"The future is here in these fascinating looks at complicated identities. Insightful, hilarious, and often heartbreaking. I can't wait for my daughter (part Cuban, part Japanese, part Jewish) to grow up and read it."         
        --Cristina Garcia, author of The Agüero Sisters
