Description

Poetry. Fiction. Asian American Studies. Literary criticism. This republication of Villa's writings both recovers and rediscovers the work of this fierce iconoclast for a new generation. Oscar V. Campomanes of the University of California writes, To say of Jose Garcia Villa that he made English 'strange' to native English speakers -- as Jean Paul Sarte once said about Frantz Fanon and French -- is no extravagant claim ...
