Though multiracialism has recently become a popular aspect of many memoirs and novels, "Mixed" is the first of its kind: a fiction anthology with racial overlap as its compass. With original pieces by both established and emerging writers, "Mixed" explores the complexities of identity that come with being a multiracial person.
Every story, crafted by authors who are themselves mixed-race, broaches multiracialism through character or theme. With contributors such as Cristina Garcia, Danzy Senna, Ruth Ozeki, Mat Johnson, Wayde Compton, Diana Abu-Jaber, Emily Raboteau, Mary Yukari Waters, and Peter Ho Davies, and an illuminating introduction by Rebecca Walker, "Mixed" gives narrative voice to the multiple identities of the rising generation.
