To hear the voice of true multiculturalism is to listen to the words of “Mixed” The authors in this anthology of short stories are multiracial; each author brings a uniue blend of experiences and styles depending on their mix of races and nationalities Like each author the stories are uniue The first story Ruth Ozeki’s “The Anthropologists Kids” sets the tone for the collection that this was not a “nobody understands me” type of collection The characters bite tongues of their offenders in these stories The stories speak about real and ordinary experiences but the characters are like those you haven’t met Diane Abu Jaber’s story “My Elizabeth” is told by a Palestinian American transplanted into Wyoming and the story weaves in Elizabeth a girl from the Seuoya reservation Both are trying to find themselves and lose themselves in the legacy that their families had left for them Emily Raboteau’s “Mrs Turner’s Lawn Jockeys” take a surreal turn as the lawn statues communicate with a young child One common thread is the acceptance of the multiracial identity by self and others The characters often feel they belong in one bucket and not another For example in Carmit Delman’s story “Footnote” her protagonist forces to carve out an identity of her own an Indian one However she realizes she doesn’t have a basis for it Mat Johnson’s story “Gift Giving” shows the anger and hate in a man who uses race to divide his marriage and divide himself Chandra Prasad’s story “Wayward” echoes of isolation and abandonment by family and strangers while the symbol of blond perfection is so desired even ready to be kidnapped The advantage for writers with a blended background is being able to don any persona Neela Vaswani who is of Irish and Indian descent takes liberties to narrate the experiences of Chinese American boyThere’s a personal touch to this collection because each story is suffixed by a blurb by the authors regarding the inspirations behind the story The writers explore complexities of being multiracial without allowing it to overpower the story Instead the focus is excellent writing and memorable characters It’s a fresh collection of short stories with such varied voices Le si gentil monsieur Henry races and nationalities Like each author the stories are uniue The first story Ruth Ozeki’s “The Anthropologists Kids” sets the tone for the collection that this was not a “nobody understands me” type of collection The characters bite tongues of their offenders in these stories The stories speak about La correspondance pratique en anglais real and ordinary experiences but the characters are like those you haven’t met Diane Abu Jaber’s story “My Elizabeth” is told by a Palestinian American transplanted into Wyoming and the story weaves in Elizabeth a girl from the Seuoya FORET DES OMBRES reservation Both are trying to find themselves and lose themselves in the legacy that their families had left for them Emily Raboteau’s “Mrs Turner’s Lawn Jockeys” take a surreal turn as the lawn statues communicate with a young child One common thread is the acceptance of the multiracial identity by self and others The characters often feel they belong in one bucket and not another For example in Carmit Delman’s story “Footnote” her protagonist forces to carve out an identity of her own an Indian one However she LES ITALIQUES JUBILATOIRES.

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 personEvery story crafted by authors who are themselves mixed race broaches multiracialism through character o. Some of these stories were insightful and some were just bizarre and seemingly pointless I did appreciate that each author wrote commentary on their piece after each short story though I didn't expect all of these writers to feel like being mixed was such a tragedyIn the end I just ended up feeling like there was something inherently wrong with me for not feeling extreme discord or self loathing because of my mixed ethnicity Apparently my best of both worlds and who even cares anyway perspective is not shared by these writers In the introduction Rebecca Walker discusses the unhealthy sense of fragmentation that plagues the multiracial person that mixed race people can become morbidly obsessed with race both because everyone else is and because it is the place of our deepest wound um really our deeeeeepest wound huh and goes on to say that We carry an internal brokenness as a result of our experiences betwixt and between and if we aren't careful we end up hoarding and polishing it like gold as if the brokenness is the true indicator of who we really are As if racial incoherence is the axis upon which our very existence revolves Yet most of the writers contributing to this anthology DID JUST THATThe gist of these stories can be summed up thusly race shouldn't matter no wait it totally does In fact my entire sense of self depends on it wait I changed my mind race is a stupid social construct but it DOES matter; oh I'm so conflicted how dare you make me CHOOOOOOOSE a race never mind that I have already chosen anyway you are just suppose to magically read my mind and KNOW how I racially identify jerk oh how tragic my life is because I'm mixed Acknowledge my inner turmoil damn it you don't understaaaaaaaaaand Seriously Even your drug abuse can be blamed on the hardships of being multiracialIf you want to read a lot of sniveling about pseudo identity crises people feeling like victims of their own ethnicity and race problems of a scarcely measurable magnitude then this book is for youIf like me you are a multiracial person who isn't totally obsessed with your own multiracialness you are going to find this book confusing and mostly irrelevant to your life
