Easily shocked readers, beware. Dorothy Tse’s writing, which has won numerous Hong Kong literary awards, may not be for you. Leaping from charming to bizarre and from strange to magical, Tse’s surrealist short stories of magical realism are a jolt to the system. However, for readers looking to see the world in a new light and be transported to another reality, Tse’s Snow and Shadow, translated into English for the first time, is a must read. Join Tse for a reading and discussion of her work.
