Emerging Voices 小說初亮相

Three debut novelists compare notes on their different journeys to getting published and their experience embarking on a writing career. An Yu grew up in Beijing but writes in English, and published her debut novel Braised Pork to great acclaim after obtaining her MFA at NYU. Eva Lau is a Hong Kong author whose first novel, Tongueless, deals with suicide and social pressure, while Ran Xu’s first novel is an LGBTQ love story that explores what it means to be caught between two great powers. This event will incorporate English, Cantonese and Mandarin, reflecting the cultural and linguistic hybridity of the authors and their work. It will also be available for later viewing with subtitles in English and Chinese.
