The Mulhouse Book is a collection of recent
scholarship on Maxine Hong Kingston gathered on the occasion
of the very first conference ever devoted exclusively to
herself and to celebrate her opera omnia. Featuring
the work of researchers from four continents, it stands for
the cosmopolitan reception of the most important Asian
American author. In addition to many new angles on her two
canonical postmodern autobiographies, The Woman
Warrior and China Men, this collection also
tackles Kingston’s less frequently discussed writings and
her most recent publications. Parallel readings and
comparisons further test her legacy in the sense of her
enduring influence on younger Asian American writers. Though
it is a conference book, this peer-reviewed volume includes
additional articles by selected scholars. It also contains
original presentations by Maxine and her husband Earll

The LIT book series Contributions to Asian American
Literary Studies is an international forum for the
interdisciplinary discussion of Asian American literary
studies. The interactive processes of the creation of Asian
American studies impose new strategies of reading
characterized by a continual call to reorientation and a new
conditioning of the determinants of meaning. Moreover,
contextualizing the Asian American experience in literature
demands a wide theoretical framework from within which to
analyze particular texts. Hence, the series editors, Rocío
G. Davis and Sämi Ludwig, encourage specific readings that
show the richness, complexity and diversity of Asian
American cultural production through critical and
theoretical lenses that focus on a great variety of writers
and genres.
