What did it mean to be a ˜half caste' in early-twentieth-century North America? Winnifred Eaton lived that experience and, as Onoto Watanna, she wrote about it. This collection of her short works some newly discovered, others long awaited by scholars--ranges from breathless magazine romance to story melodrama and provides a riveting introduction to a unique literary personality. Diana Birchall, author of Onoto Watanna: The Story of Winnifred Eaton. Onoto Watanna (1875-1954) was the daughter of a British father and a Chinese mother. The first novelist of Chinese descent to be published in the United States, she "became" Japanese to escape Americans' scorn of the Chinese and to capitalize on their fascination with things Japanese. Of Watanna's numerous shorter works, this volume includes nineteen thirteen stories and six essays intended to show the scope and versatility of Watanna's writing. _x000B_
