Deploying the politics of rememory in their textual representation of female development, Morrison and Kingston unearth the multiple layers of repressed memories, including personal stories, specific cultural history, and racial experiences of African- and Asian-American women.

This book analyzes the working through of repressed memories in Morrisons The Bluest Eye and Sula, and Hong Kingstons The Woman Warrior and China Men. The gap between Bildung and anti-Bildung in these texts highlights the multiple oppression faced by women of color and interrogates the established standards and value system of the hegemonic culture.
