The Heartsick Diaspora, and other stories, Paperback / softback Book

The Heartsick Diaspora, and other stories Paperback / softback

Description

In the title story (runner-up in the 2018 UK Bridport Prize) four Asian writers are flummoxed by the sexual shenanigans that start when a handsome young Asian writer joins their support group.

In other stories, three Singaporean daughters welcome their mother on a first visit to London and quarrel over steamboat; a Chinese woman raps about being a Tiger Mother; an elderly Chinese woman finds that it isn't race that estranges, but the inability to tell the truth; and an ethnic writer takes on Eastern mythology in a metaphoric quest to understand the anxiety of Western literary influence.
