Xu Xi: From Fiction to Nonfiction

Event Closed

More Details

Often described as a “transnational” or “third-culture” author, Xu Xi—Indonesian-Chinese, HK-raised, US-educated—writes with first-hand knowledge of the insider-outsider’s experience in Hong Kong. Here Xu Xi talks about her two most recent works, departures from her previous fiction work: Dear Hong Kong, a memoir written in the form of a “Dear John” letter to Hong Kong, and Interruptions, an ekphrastic essay collection in conversation with the photographs of David Clarke.
