STORIES & ESSAYS OF THE CHINESE, OVERSEAS

For millions of wah kiu or “overseas Chinese,” life beyond China’s borders is fraught with questions of identity. Xu Xi takes us around the globe, from Southeast Asia to Europe to North America to the Pacific, and explores the joys, fears, idealism, disappointments, dreams and lives of the wah kiu. This is the first of her books to include a selection of essays.
