From Publishers Weekly:

Pearlman adds to her earlier Inter/View, a collection of interviews with women writers (coauthored with Katherine Usher Henderson, and entitled A Voice of One's Own in paperback), by reaching out here to writers of diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Many are "so-called hyphenated writers"--e.g., the exuberant, authoritative African American poet Lucille Clifton ( Quilting Poems ) and the young Chinese American novelist Gish Jen ( Typical American )--whose works encompass issues of culture as well as gender. In essay form, Pearlman describes their responses to being so labeled: "It's, like, not my problem," says Philippine-born novelist Jessica Hagedorn ( Dogeaters ) about being read as a Filipino writer. Other interviews capture the fairly reserved responses of poet Sharon Olds ( The Father ), the publishing know-how of bestselling novelist Anne Rice ( The Tale of the Body Thief ) and the graceful reflections of mystery writer Susan Kenney ( Sailing ). On the whole, however, this volume is somewhat more mannered and less incisively revealing than its predecessor.
