Product Overview

Full of tales about women at a point of change--Li Li is pregnant, alone, and frightened; Gladys plots revenge against a racist neighbor; Margret doesn't know if she can tell her mother that she is a lesbian--this collection of stories deals with themes of hybridity from distinctive angles that include ethnicity and sexual orientation. Focused on the Chinese diaspora within such wide-ranging settings as London, China, California, Malaysia, and the Caribbean, these stories of compelling characters making necessary journeys are written with unwavering and painful realism, wicked humor, and lyrical imagination.
