Launch Party w/ Ho Lin

October 5, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0

Ho Lin, co-editor of the long-running literary journal Caveat Lector, joins us in the Marina for a Launch Party celebrating his dazzling fiction debut, China Girl: And Other Stories.

A modern woman adrift in modern China. Would-be lovers connected and separated by random chance. A drunken dissident and his less-then-happy minder. A researcher of war atrocities who must come to grips with her own family tragedies. A princess of a kingdom that no longer exists. Actors placed at the service of comedies and tragedies, depending on a filmmaker’s whim… These are the characters that populate Ho Lin’s short story collection China Girl.

In its nine tales, China Girl documents the collisions between East and West, the power of myth and the burden of history, and loves lost and almost found. The stories in this collection encompass everything from contemporary vignettes about urban life to fable-like musings on memories and the art of storytelling. Wide-ranging and playful, China Girl is a journey into today’s Asia as well as an Asia of the imagination.
