Winner of the 2016 organization for Asian American stories Award for top ebook in Cultural StudiesThe beautiful Corpse of Asian the US addresses this critical query: if race has been settled as a felony or social building and never as organic truth, why do Asian American artists, authors, and performers proceed to scrutinize their physique elements? enticing novels, poetry, theater, and new media from either the U.S. and internationally—such as Kazuo Ishiguro’s technological know-how fiction novel by no means enable Me move or Ruth Ozeki’s My yr of Meats and shows like that of physique Worlds during which a few of the our bodies on demonstrate originated from chinese language prisons—Rachel C. Lee teases out the preoccupation with human fragments and posthuman ecologies within the context of Asian American cultural creation and idea.
