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 person. Every story, crafted by authors who are themselves mixed-race, broaches multiracialism through character or theme. With contributors such as Cristina Garcia, Danzy Senna, Ruth Ozeki, Mat Johnson, Wayde Compton, Diana Abu-Jaber, Emily Raboteau, Mary Yukari Waters, and Peter Ho Davies, and an illuminating introduction by Rebecca Walker, Mixed gives narrative voice to the multiple identities of the rising generation.

About the Author
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.

Rebecca Walker has received numerous awards and accolades for her writing and activism. Her memoir "Black, White and Jewish" is a national bestseller; her work has appeared in many anthologies and publications, and her feminist anthology "To Be Real," in print for almost ten years, has become a standard text in women's studies courses across the country. Walker, who lectures extensively in the United States and Canada, divides her time between New York City and northern California.
