About Sinister Wisdom 120: Asian Lesbians, editor Vi Khi Nao writes, it "is designed to be highly ambitious, all-encompassing and inclusive, tender and provocative, experimental and cliché, fragile and resilient, vulnerable and hardcore, dynamic and demonstrative, embarrassing and awkward, perfect and incomplete, tantalizing and boring, garrulous and reticent, overwhelming and microscopic, cosmic and delirious, emotional and cephalic, erotic and mundane, and mostly Asian and female and queer and specific, just for you. I want this anthology to make you feel less isolated in your desire. To experience the beauty and vulnerability and depth of talent from all over the world and to know that your art, your desire, your Asianness has a home and is validated."
Sinister Wisdom 120: Asian Lesbians is a thick issue with over 300 pages and contributors from the United States and around the world.
