Inlandia

Overview

Cultural Writing. Fiction. Poetry. Essays. INLANDIA puts a new literary region on the map. A land of dramatic landscapes and increasingly dynamic human developments, the Inland Empire is becoming much more than just "the area east of Los Angeles." As tract homes creep over desert areas once thought uninhabitable, the population of the region-comprised of Riverside and San Bernardino Counties-has roughly doubled in the last twenty years and is expected to do the same in the next twenty, making it one of the ...

Overview

Cultural Writing. Fiction. Poetry. Essays. INLANDIA puts a new literary region on the map. A land of dramatic landscapes and increasingly dynamic human developments, the Inland Empire is becoming much more than just "the area east of Los Angeles." As tract homes creep over desert areas once thought uninhabitable, the population of the region-comprised of Riverside and San Bernardino Counties-has roughly doubled in the last twenty years and is expected to do the same in the next twenty, making it one of the fastest growing regions in America. Unique in its own history and a microcosm of America at large, it is a land of startling racial, socio-economic, and ideological diversity that has long produced innovative and passionate writing. INLANDIA is a fascinating study of the journey of a people bound by geography yet striving for self-identity and artistic recognition, and of a land that is becoming both more prosperous and endangered. Over eighty writers are represented in the anthology, with material ranging from Indian stories and early explorers' narratives to pieces written by local emerging authors.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Yes, Virginia, there is a literary scene east of Los Angeles. Gayle Wattawa proves that point with this 400-page anthology of robust writings from Southern California locales east of L.A. Among this collection's greatest strengths is its authentic novelty: Many of the engaging pieces herein were crafted by writers unfamiliar to readers outside the region.
Library Journal
Inlandia, or the Inland Empire, constituting Riverside and San Bernardino counties in Southern California, is one of the fastest-growing regions in the United States. The term was first used in the 1950s to distinguish the region from the Los Angeles area, another Inland Empire with its own unique culture. The desert, the gangs, the tract housing, the ethnic mix: all these aspects of Inlandia and more are presented in this anthology, edited by Heyday acquisitions editor Wattawa and containing stories, essays, poems, and nonfiction. Like other Heyday anthologies (e.g., California Uncovered: Stories for the 21st Century), the pieces within are a mix of contemporary and older items and present both established and literary voices. This work also contains historical entries, such as excerpts from the diary of a Japanese American interned during World War II. Recommended for public libraries and for libraries collecting in American and/or California studies.-Terren Ilana Wein, Univ. of Chicago Divinity Sch. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
