Given that there isn't much written about contemporary Cambodian writers I will go out on a limb and say that this is the best book on this topic out there. Lots of interesting stories but fiction and non-fiction.
Marvelous, as are all the issues of this long-standing journal, Manoa, each with a special thematic focus (regarding the Pacific rim).
