An essay in - SWAYING Essays on Intercultural Love

Published by University of Iowa Press
ISBN: 0-87745-527-9 (paper)
Edited by Jessie Carroll Grearson and Lauren B. Smith

This anthology of 15 cross cultural love stories includes my essay:

"Crossing Cultures: The Story of a Chinese Man and an American Woman" by Nora Egan

With fresh writing by women with many different cultural relationships this is a fascinating read for anyone interested either in the mystery of relationships or cultures. From the last paragraph in the introduction:

"Reading these essays and writing our own has helped us begin to sort out the nature of our own intercultural relationships - helped us better understand Indian, African, and American cultures as well as our own unique interpretations of those cultures. Trying to pinpoint and write about such distinctions - the unique and personal in dialogue with the common and cultural - seems to us at the heart of true intercutlural understanding, an understanding that seeks to appreciate differences without stereotyping. Finding this balance continues to be one of America's most pressing projects and deepest needs."
