  • Description
  • About the Author
  • The short stories of Shirley Geok-lin Lim—born in Malacca, Malaysia and now Professor of English and Women’s Studies at the University of California—reflect the complex mosaic of her world. From the rich Peranakan tradition of her childhood to the harsh perplexity of American life in adulthood, her writing bristles with violence, dislocation and psychic dismemberment. This collection brings you Lim’s most memorable stories, along with her most recent work—written over four decades—from the tumultuous 1960s all through to our present day.

  • Shirley Geok-lin Lim was born in Malacca Malaysia. She is an American writer of poetry, fiction, and criticism. Her first collection of poems, Crossing The Peninsula, published in 1980, won her the Commonwealth Poetry Prize, a first both for an Asian and for a woman.
