Eleven contributors, including two males, analyze the themes of gender and ethnicity--and their siblings of class, sexual preference, and religion--represented in short stories by contemporary American women of dual cultures. Sample titles include: (Dis)continuous narrative: the articulation of a chicana feminist voice in Cisneros' The House on Mango Street, Beyond otherness: negotiated identities and Viramontes' "The Cariboo Cafe," and Reconstructing the Native- American woman: Erdrich's "Fleur." The other authors discussed are: Cofer, Hejmadi, Yamamoto, Suncircle, Lorde, Morrison, Welty, and Ozick. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
