9780452280496: Leaving Deep Water: Asian American Women at the Crossroads of Two Cultures

Integrating ethnic identity with mainstream American culture is a complex task. In Leaving Deep Water, Claire S. Chow deftly explores the many ways that women of Asian descent have forged a place for themselves in modern society. Drawing from the personal narratives of dozens of women from China, Japan, Korea, and other Asian countries, Chow analyzes such common themes as coming of age, parental expectations, marriage and divorce, career experiences, family relationships, and aging. These intimate reflections are deeply moving, the voices unique, and the stories eye-opening, bringing new perspectives to the multicultural experience. Leaving Deep Water offers guidance, inspiration, and a shared sense of struggle while breaking down myths and celebrating the ability to build a new sense of identity in a foreign place.
