Join us as we head to The Owl Bookshop for a conversation about diaspora, homesickness, the divided self and trying to live within a culture which is not your own. Myriad authors Carol Isaacs and Elaine Chiew will be in conversation with Emily Rhodes from 18.30 – 20.30 on 22nd January 2020.
Elaine Chiew’s debut short story collection, The Heartsick Diaspora is set in different cities around the world and explores the lives of the Chinese diaspora living there, torn between cultures and juggling divided selves. Acutely observed, wry and playful, these stories are as worldly and emotionally resonant as the characters themselves. “Full of verve and wit,” says Monica Ali.
Both The Heartsick Diaspora and The Wolf of Baghdad will be available to purchase and have signed at the event. Tickets are £5, buy now via the bookshop website.
