Product Description


"In this nuanced and insightful analysis of ethnic women writers Amy Tan, Barbara Kingsolver, Ana Castillo, and Toni Morrison, Michael argues that traditional American values like rugged individualism, capitalist materialism, and intersecting race, class, ethnic, and gender oppressions isolate, impoverish, and victimize women until they turn to the values of ethnic communities for inspiration."---Phillipa Kafka, author, On the Outside Looking In(dian): Indian Women Writers at Home and Abroad
