Literary Criticism/ Cultural Studies, newly available from SPD. BEYOND SILENCE is the first book-length study to attempt to construct the historical and cultural contexts of Chinese-Canadian writing, search out its lost texts, and build a theoretical ground for its reading. Especially powerful are its arguments that silence and silencing have been the strategic and--for writing--paradoxical tropes of both Chinese and Chinese-Canadian culture--Frank Davey, University of Western Ontario. The authors covered include Denise Chong, Sean Gunn, Winston Christopher Kam, Evelyn Lau, Sky Lee, Paul Yee, Fred Wah, Jim Wong-Chu, and others. Lien Chao, originally from mainland China, is a poet and critic.
