This landmark collection of poetry and prose heralds a new era for Vietnamese- American literatureFrom the Inside Flap:
"Watermark is simply some of the best writing from a new generation of Vietnamese writers in America. Eloquent, poignant, funny-the writing goes beyond war-taking us into the towns and fields of America. This is the Vietnamese literature of the future, 'a taste of the pure, sea salt sadness of the outcast' (to paraphrase Monique T.D. Truong) made inclusive by the editors' uncommon and judicious selections." —Russell Leong, Editor, UCLA Amerasia Journal
"Vietnamese-American literature is young. You can hardly tell it, though, from this collection of stories published by the Asian American Writers' Workshop in New York. Here is an array of diverse talents that surprise and delight. Keen observation or exuberant fancy. Gentle humor, urbane charm, or devilish wit. Real life or the magic of dreams. Read Watermark and treat yourself to some fiction that transcends mere documents of the Vietnamese-American experience." —Huynh Sanh Thong, Publisher and General Editor, The Vietnam Review
