Allen Gee: My Chinese-America

The Literary Guild of St. Simons Island's "Coffee with the Author" series presents Allen Gee, a graduate of the University of New Hampshire, The Iowa Writers’ Workshop, and The University of Houston. He is an associate professor of English at Georgia College, where he teaches in the M.F.A. program and edits for the journal Arts & Letters. My Chinese-America is his first book, and in it he writes about aspects of Asian-American life in a detailed, eloquent manner, looking at how Asian-Americans view themselves in light of America’s insensitivities, stereotypes, and expectations. It was chosen for the Sante Fe Writers Project Literary Prize.
