Summary
"From the Eaton sisters' literary works at the turn of the previous century to Gish Jen's 2004 novel The Love Wife, Recontextualizing Asian American Domesticity explores the ways in which the trope of American domesticity is experimented, resisted, and reinvented in Asian American women's literature. In order to contextualize Asian American women's writing within the terrain of American cultural and literary history, this book considers how the trope of domesticity is deployed in constructing Asian American women's subjectivity, especially through the tension and dynamic between Asian and white American womanhood."--BOOK JACKET
