TITLE

Asian Birthright and Anglo Bequest in Chang-Rae Lee and Bich Minh Nguyen

ABSTRACT

In this chapter, I analyze Asian American writers’ constant struggle between ethnicity and mainstream assimilation, between what I term “Asian Birthright and Anglo Bequest.” That ethnicity is said to be part of one’s identity as innate as Asian physical features, an Asian birthright, as it were. But ethnicity is subject to social construction within the exigencies of contemporary American culture, particularly the publishing industry. While this Asian birthright is alleged to be intrinsic, intuited somehow by Asian Americans, it could arguably be a self-essentializing move to fashion an identity for a foothold in the multiethnic American community. To assume an Asian birthright then secures an Anglo-American bequest, as in Lee and Nguyen.
