New Work in Asia Literary Review

Asia Literary Review is an ambitious and handsome English journal published in Hong Kong. Its December issue (not on-line yet) has just arrived, in which my memoir piece, "Lost Letters," appears. The piece opens with the following line:

"In the year of the Snake – I remember because it's my daughter's sign – the image of a maroon suitcase made of camphor wood began to follow me like a phantom."

I'm happy to be alongside with admirable Chinese writers such as Su Tong.

Wow! What a happy coincidence. Now you can both celebrate the same year.
