That We May Live: Dorothy Tse and Natascha Bruce in conversation
May 21, 2020 @ 7:00 pm PDTFree
Surreal stories for a surreal time. Hong Kong surrealist writer Dorothy Tse and translator Natascha Bruce join Calico editor Sarah Coolidge to talk about That We May Live.
That We May Live, the first book in the brand-new Calico Series, brings you work by some of today’s most exciting writers from China and Hong Kong, including Dorothy Tse (tr. Natascha Bruce), Zhu Hui (tr. Michael Day), and Enoch Tam (tr. Jeremy Tiang). Lightly touching on issues of urbanization, sexuality, and propaganda, the collection builds a world both utterly disorienting and disturbing familiar, prompting the question: Where does reality end and absurdity begin in a world pushed to its very limits?
