Stories and Essays of The Chinese, Overseas

by Xu Xi

For millions of wah kiu or "overseas Chinese," life beyond China?s borders is fraught with questions of identity. These eleven stories and thirteen essays take us round the globe, exploring the joys, fears, idealism, disappointments and dreams of the wah kiu. One critic describes the author's sensibility as "keenly observant, generous and compassionate," while another says her "unparalleled literary reach touches several continents with a new and innovative diasporic global language." This is the first collection to include essays.
