A Girl Like Me & other stories (enlarged edition)
By Xi Xi
Translated by Eva Hung
With three additional stories, the enlarged edition of this anthology presents samples from the author's entire writing career, ranging from the 1960s to the 1990s. It includes excerpts from Xi Xi's Elegy for a Breast, an intensely personal account of her own battle with cancer.
Xi Xi's fascinating rendering of the fusion of East and West, tradition and modernity that is Hong Kong assures her place in the literary annals of this unique society.
'A writer who deserves a place in the international library'
—Far Eastern Economic Review
'Her stories blend sophistication with an unflinching, childlike wonder.'
