This anthology covering the diverse lived experiences of Asian-Americans is enhanced by a full cast of vocal performers. Composed of 30 essays and poems, the collection covers a wide range of experiences from different intersectionalities. The talented narrators deliver the vignettes in varying styles, creating a compelling aural smorgasbord. Similar themes of being othered, fetishized, or erased or of being considered the perpetual foreigner or part of the model minority myth help create cohesiveness. "Listen Asshole" is a standout track performed by Yellow Rage, the spoken-word duo of Michelle Myers and Sokunthary Svay, who wrote the passionate and angry poem more than 20 years ago. SuChin Pak thoughtfully narrates a reflective introduction. This resonant collection is filled with heartfelt and thought-provoking experiences and messages that serve as powerful windows and mirrors. V.T.M.
