Half and Half: Writers on Growing Up Biracial and Bicultural Paperback - 1998 - 1st Edition

by Claudine C. O'Hearn

O'Hearn presents a collection of personal essays by some of the most interesting and important writers on the experience of being biracial and bicultural in the United States today.


From the publisher

Claudine Chiawei O'Hearn was born in Hong Kong and raised in Asia and Europe.  She lives in New York City.

First line

One labor Day some years ago, I was sitting at the dining table at my place in Eugene, Oregon, gazing out of the picture window over the front lawn at my two boys, Hudson and Alex, as they took turns splashing around in a wading pool with a small group of their friends.

From the jacket flap

As we approach the twenty-first century, biracialism and biculturalism are becoming increasingly common. Skin color and place of birth are no longer reliable signifiers of one's identity or origin. Simple questions like What are you? and Where are you from? aren't answered--they are discussed. These eighteen essays, joined by a shared sense of duality, address the difficulties of not fitting into and the benefits of being part of two worlds. Through the lens of personal experience, they offer a broader spectrum of meaning for race and culture. And in the process, they map a new ethnic terrain that transcends racial and cultural division.
