Perilous Telling: Story in the Shadow of the Refugee Regime
ON ASIAN AMERICAN LITERATURE
     Asian Americans have always fought for our historical truths. We fight to correct the record so the world may see us, and themselves, more clearly.
 
     But we also fight for our rightful inheritance of lies and refusals. For our lapses of memory, our grainy uncaptioned photos, our diversions, our flights of madness. As Asian Americans, we live surrounded by incompleteness and untruth, and that’s not always a bad thing. Isn’t that where imagination picks up and we start to create a better world for ourselves and each other? That’s literary, too.
 
     Literature is a muscle we’ve been strengthening all these years.
