"This May, as we celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we wanted to take an opportunity to shine a light on some of the new books from Asian American authors.
As you can see, the genres, styles, and topics of these books are as varied and diverse as the Asian American population (we are, after all, talking about Americans with roots in more than 20 different countries). In the mood for science fiction? Try an artificial intelligence thriller, or Ken Liu's new short story collection. For memorable memoirs, pick up Crying in H Mart, Sigh, Gone, or Speak, Okinawa. There's also plenty of literary fiction, historical fiction, romance, and fantasy to keep you reading all year long.
We have divvied up the books below by adult fiction, young adult fiction, and nonfiction—all of them published since the start of 2020 through the beginning of May."
