When and Where
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
125 East 65th Street
Reading and discussion with acclaimed Hong Kong writer Dorothy Tse.
“Snow and Shadow challenges the boundaries and limitations of our narrow, conventional realities and forces us to re-examine our perspective of the world…this enchanting collection of transformative tales will, like a shadow, follow them long after the final page.”
– Amy Russell, South China Morning Post
Dorothy Tse is one of Hong Kong’s most acclaimed young writers. Her short story collection So Black won the Hong Kong Biennial Award for Chinese Literature in 2005 and A Dictionary of Two Cities, which she co-authored with Hon Lai-chu, won the 2013 Hong Kong Book Prize. Her literary prizes also include Taiwan’s Unitas New Fiction Writers’ Award and the Hong Kong Award for Creative Writing in Chinese. A co-founder of Hong Kong’s preeminent literary magazine, Fleurs des Lettres, she currently teaches creative writing at Hong Kong Baptist University.
Snow and Shadow displays Ms. Tse’s distinctive dreamlike and surrealist style, which she attributes to her struggle to carve out space as an artist in Hong Kong’s highly commercial, trend-obsessed society. Ms. Tse will read from her book and discuss her writing and inspirations with the audience.
