Two-Countries: US Daughters & Sons of Immigrant Parents is an anthology of flash memoir, personal essays, and poetry edited by the adult child of an immigrant born and raised in the United States. The collection contains contributions from sixty-five writers who were either born and/or raised in the United States by one or more immigrant parent. Their work describes the many contradictions, discoveries, and life lessons one experiences when one is neither seen as fully American nor fully foreign. Contributors include Richard Blanco, Tina Chang, Joseph Lagaspi, Li-Young Lee, Timothy Liu, Naomi Shihab Nye, Oliver de la Paz, Ira Sukrungruang, Ocean Vuong, and many other talented writers from throughout the United States.
"When you hold in your DNA two countries--the cultures, the languages, the delicious foods and stories--you embody richness. These writers know on the cellular level manylayered ways to live, to struggle, to love. Here are voices we need to hear, writers we need to read. This is a brilliant, timely book, an antidote to divisiveness."--Peggy Shumaker, author of Gnawed Bones and Just Breathe Normally
