War Baby / Love Child: Mixed Race Asian American Art

 Midnight Peaches, Two O'Clock Patience is a collection of essays, poems, and short stories on all aspects of womanhood. This collection disrupts the border separating public and private, human existence and the spirit realm, exposing the beauty of what has been named dirty, shameful, and repulsive. Stickmon reminds us that patience and a listening ear can inspire a woman's creative power to overflow without warning. Janet Stickmon is a professor of humanities at Napa Valley College and founder of Broken Shackle Developmental Training. War Baby / Love Child examines hybrid Asian-American identity through a collection of essays, artworks, and interviews at the intersection of critical mixed race studies and contemporary art. The book pairs artwork and interviews with 19 mixed race/mixed heritage Asian-American artists with scholarly essays. As an increasingly ethnically ambiguous Asian-American generation is coming of age in an era of "optional identity," this collection brings together first-person perspectives and a wider scholarly context to shed light on changing Asian-American cultures. Laura Kina is associate professor of art, media, and design at DePaul University and the coeditor of War Baby/Love Child.
