Summary
Selves in Dialogue: A Transethnic Approach to American Life Writing constitutes an explicit answer to the urgent call for a comparative study of American autobiography. This collection of essays ostensibly intends to cut across cultural, "racial" and/or "ethnic" boundaries, introducing the concept of "transethnicity" and arguing for its increasing validity in the ever-changing field of American Studies. Accordingly, the comparative analysis in Selves in Dialogue is implemented not by juxtaposing essays that pay "separate but equal" attention to specific "monoethnic" or "monocultural" tradition
