Omtale Anime Wong
Yamashita is known for her inclusion of performance elements in her novels (the I Spy Hotel section of I Hotel) and this collection is a natural extension of that. Yamashita's imagination, wordplay, and humor are a big part of her appeal, and the performance pieces take full advantage of her talent for thought-provoking satire and absurdity in social criticism.The collaborative nature of the pieces performed, and their connection to Asian American theatrical troupes (documented in the book with text and photographs) make this a work of historical as well as literary interestYamashita will be staging performances of work included in Anime Wong, and nontraditional sales opportunities (at Asian American and Japanese American historical and cultural centers as well as theaters) aboundI Hotel will be part of a travelling exhibition organized by the Smithsonian this fall and winter and ties in nicely with the publication of Anime Wong
