- "I hate my wife for her flat yellow face..." by Ron Tanaka (Reprinted in Roots: an Asian American Reader)
"I hate my wife for her flat yellow face
and her fat cucumber legs, but mostly
for her lack of elegance and lack of
intelligence compared to Judith Gluck.
I married my wife, daughter of a rich
east Los Angeles banker, for money,
of course. I thought I deserved better, but
suffering is something else altogether.
She married me for love but she can't love
me, since no one who went to Fresno State
knows anything about Warhol or Ginsberg or
Viet Nam. She has no Jewish friends."
- "Afraid" by Joyce Kawasaki
- "It is good to see you smile" by Laura Ho
