"Out of the Shadows of Angkor: Cambodian Poetry, Prose, and Performance through the Ages"

Trent Walker
University of Hawai'i Press

Out of the Shadows of Angkor is a volume of nearly 400 pages edited by MĀNOA and its editorial team and published by the University of Hawai‘i Press. This groundbreaking collection of prose, poetry, performance pieces, and visual art emerges from a thirty-year effort of the five guest editors to gather and champion Cambodian literary and cultural works. In doing so, they not only translated rare works into English for the first time, but also helped to rescue writing lost during the Khmer Rouge regime (1975–1979). Beautifully designed, Out of the Shadows is an outstanding selection of Cambodian writing from the past and present.

Guest editors: Sharon May, Christophe Macquet, Trent Walker, Phina So, and Rinith Taing
