For two decades, I have edited a biannual series of volumes under the title Mänoa: A Pacific Journal of International Writing. Each volume is published by the University of Hawai`i Press as an original paperback book, and occasionally a volume also appears in hardback form. Oftentimes the publications are compilations of contemporary literature in new English translation from specific places in Asia and the Pacific--places that are not always defined by national borders. The guiding editorial assumption of Mänoa has been that excellent international literature--well wrought and attuned to the multiplicity and mystery of what makes us human--invariably transcends itself, no matter how local its details may be. By literature I mean stories that address the profound concerns of listeners and readers who recognize their own circumstances, and at the same time appreciate a true presentation of the cognitive, moral, and aesthetic variety that comprises the world as a whole. At best, literature carries us--not as tourists or eavesdroppers, but as kin--into the lives and locations of others, to whom we acknowledge a responsibility beyond tribe and nation. Just as in the ecological harmony of plants, animals, and other beings, in the human world every community and relationship
