Item description for Overleaf Hong Kong by Xu Xi...
For the millions of wah kiu or "overseas Chinese," life in the world beyond China's borders is fraught with the question of identity. In these stories and essays, written over the past thirty years, Xu Xi explores the joys, fears, idealism, disappointments, dreams and lives of the wah kiu. In Overleaf Hong Kong, she takes us around the globe, from Southeast Asia to Europe to North America to the Pacific, in her quest to address the problem of all wah kius -- what does being "Chinese" mean once your ancestors have left the homeland?
