An analytically innovative work, Begin Here widens the current critical focus of Asian North American literary studies by proposing an integrated thematic and narratological approach to the practice of autobiography. It demonstrates how Asian North American memoirs of childhood challenge the construction and performative potential of national experiences. This understanding influences theoretical approaches to ethnic life writing, expanding the boundaries of traditional autobiography by negotiating narrative techniques and genre and raising complex questions about self-representation and the construction of cultural

It argues that the use of fantasy acts as a way of undermining the power of patriarchy and unsettling fixed notions of home. The idea of home explored in this book relates to complicated struggles to gain a sense of belonging, as experienced by marginalized subjects in constructing their diasporic identities — which can best be understood as unstable,

First published in 1963. The Secret History (so called merely because it was meant for the Mongols and not for the Chinese,) has been chiefly studied from a learned point of view and its quality as literature and hence its value to the lay reader have been greatly overlooked. The Chinese version has been used, but with constant reference to the Mongol text. The parts selected (founded on story-tellers' tales) date from the middle of the thirteenth century.

Dreams often appear as remarkably coherent narratives. How does the mind organize the unconscious into the narrative forms exhibited by dreams, literary inspiration, and neuroses? Although the discovery of the unconscious is undeniably Freud's most crucial contribution to psychology, one that forms the cornerstone of psychoanalysis, the unconscious and its narrative tendencies remain largely a mystery--despite years of investigation. We still wonder about the meaning and origin of the stories told in our sleep. In The Unconscious and Its Narratives,
