A strong, compelling, and quietly beautiful collection of stories that have gone untold for too long, from voices that have too often been sidelined from the artistic mainstream.
A terrific read. It's going to be very important in all the debates around the ever-changing political and cultural life in this country.
A wonderful book - so timely and much needed. I loved the collection and I hope everyone will read it.
In East Side Voices, the first anthology of its kind, writers of East and Southeast Asian descent and diaspora in the UK reflect on identity, community and family. Coming after an especially traumatic few years for ESEA communities, East Side Voices is a dazzling and joyous celebration.
This important book, which is full of wit and insight, sheds light on aspects of racism that are often overlooked and it offers welcome exposure for a collection of voices that are too often sidelined from the cultural mainstream.
This first-of-its-kind anthology edited by founder of the East Side Voices cultural salon and acting deputy editor of Harper's Bazaar, Helena Lee, explores and celebrates East and Southeast Asian identity in Britain. With contributions from actors, novelists and poets, among others, this riveting and important book covers themes of family history, racial identity, assimilation and difference.
An important addition to the growing literature of contemporary identity and cultural politics.
