With a roster of acclaimed authors, Mixed explodes expectations of what it means to be multiracial. The complexion of America is changing. People can trace their lineage to Native American, African American, Asian, Irish, Italian, and Puerto Ricansometimes all in the same person. The United States alone counts over twenty million people of multiracial descent, and the number is growing. With contributors such as Danzy Senna, Cristina Garcia, and Diana Abu-Jaber, and with an illuminating introduction by Rebecca Walker, Mixed is the first anthology to give voice to the multiple identities of the rising generation. Peter Ho Davies's confused minotaur; Ruth Ozeki's young, biracial gumshoes; and Wayde Compton's college junkie inhabit stories that are as broad in style as in perspective. Yet, as a whole, Mixed reflects a singular spirit, one of nonconformity in a world where people continue to ask the question "What are you?" and then wait for a one-word response.

Nawal El Saadawi is a renowned Egyptian writer, novelist and activist. She has published over 40 books, which have been translated into over 30 languages.

Chandra Prasad is the originator and editor of -- and a contributor to -- W. W. Norton's Mixed: An Anthology of Short Fiction on the Multiracial Experience, which includes original pieces by Ruth Ozeki, Danzy Senna, and Rebecca Walker. Her other works include the novella Death of a Circus, which Tom Perrotta hails as "narrated with Dickensian verve, a keen eye for historical detail, and lots of heart," and the careers guide Outwitting the Job Market. Prasad is also the author of numerous articles, which have been published by the Wall Street Journal and New York Times Magazine, among others. A graduate of Yale, she lives and works in Connecticut.
