Congratulations to Hyphen's own Neelanjana Banerjee, who, with Summi Kaipa and Pireeni Sundaralingam, has co-edited an extensive and gorgeous collection of South Asian American poetry, the first ever in this country.

These were my questions for Neela:
The previous issue of Hyphen is available in its entirety for your perusing pleasure. Almost as good as having it right in your hands!
