New York, NY 10001
Village Voice's Description
There's much more to Asian American lit than Amy Tan, and the Asian American Booksellerathe biggest of its kind in the countryais proof of the field's breadth and depth. Carrying the canonical, the obscure, and the emergent, the store also has a sizable selection of Asian literature translated into English. Browsers can hang out in a loft space with comfy couches. And when turning those pages gets you hungry, there's great Korean food in the nabe. Run by the nonprofit Asian American Writers Workshop, the store has an annual Midnight Madness Sale, when books sell at a hefty discount.
