In the era of globalization, multicultural writers have come to prominence in various countries. They use the choice of language as an effective literary weapon to describe their multi-layered identities and their search for “home” in their trans-cultural background. In order to examine this literary phenomena, two transnational writers’ works will be compared; Kyoko Mori’s The Dream of Water: a Memoir and Hideo Levy’s The Room Where the Star-Spangled Banner Can’t be Heard. Mori, though born in Japan, writes her works in English, while Levy, a Jewish American, writes his works in Japanese.
