Celebrating the 25th anniversary of its publication, the
Diasporic Vietnamese Artists Network is proud to release a newly updated
version of Watermark, the seminal
anthology of Vietnamese American literature. Contextualized by a new foreword
from Isabelle Thuy Pelaud and seasoned with new voices, Watermark: Vietnamese American Poetry and Prose, 25th Anniversary
Edition
takes its place as a generational work of eclectic and essential
voices.

Edited by Barbara Tran, Monique Truong, and Luu Truong Khoi,
this updated edition of Watermark
continues to elevate Vietnamese American literature, whose renaissance it
ushered in upon its first publication. Again, some of the most innovative
contemporary Vietnamese American writers, such as Linh Dinh, Andrew Lam, Bich
Minh Nguyen, and Dao Strom, explore thematic and stylistic territory previously
overlooked in other collections, which have traditionally focused on war. New
voices such as Anvi Ho ng, Vinh Nguyen, and Vi Khi Nao are included in this new edition,
raising the number of pieces from forty to fifty-two.

Watermark lifts
all constraints, leaving the works to reset the boundaries for themselves. And
they do--using poetry, fiction, and experimental forms to venture further into
the fringes of the Vietnamese American psyche. A work equal measures
foundational and pathbreaking, now available again for a new generation of
readers--an essential collection not to be missed.
