About this title


"The equation of silence and passivity, and the stereotypical ascription of those characteristics onto Asian Americans has long plagued the lives of Asians in America. . . .Cheung challenges and effectively deconstructs this stereotype by complicating the very notion of silence as represented in the work of writers Hisaye Yamamoto, Maxine Hong Kingston, and Joy Kogawa. . . .In this challenge to Eurocentric and simplistic celebrations of speech over silence, King-kok Cheung has opened up diverse avenues of study with unlimited potential for further examination and theorization that will surely move Asian American studies into new and productive directions."―Kandice Chuh, International Examiner Literary Supplement, Spring 1994

"King-Kok Cheung's Articulate Silences remains a persuasive, gracefully written, and timely study. Her meticulous and insightful close readings will go a long way toward establishing the craftsmanship of Asian American writers, which unfortunately is still grossly underappreciated."―San-Ling Cynthia Wong, University of California Berkeley, American Quarterly
