In the opening pages of Sherman Alexie's Reservation Blues (1995), Spokane Indian storyteller Thomas Builds-the-Fire comes into ownership of legendary African American bluesman Robert Johnson's guitar, a magical object that both furthers his band's musical aptitude and reopens the scars of historical memory. In Gish Jen's Mona in the Promised Land (1996), her titular Chinese-American protagonist, newly-relocated to an affluent New York suburb, converts to Judaism, arguing to her mother, "we are a minority, like it or not, and if you want to know how to be a minority, there's nobody better at it than the Jews."
