Poetry. Fiction. Literary Nonfiction. Asian & Asian American Studies. California Interest. MERIDIAN: THE APWT DRUNKEN BOAT ANTHOLOGY OF NEW WRITING is a rousing collection of 37 voices, both established and emerging, from over 14 countries. This rich conversation epitomizes a version of a meridian, a ghost map of connections ranging from Hong Kong to the Gold Coast, Tokyo to Abu Dhabi, Singapore to Kabul, pulsing with story and song. As Pulitzer Prize winner Vijay Seshadri writes about the book, it is "new and fresh and thrilling, suffused with the sense of a beginning but also with the sense of the perennial and the permanent."
