Strike the Wok

An Anthology of Contemporary Chinese Canadian Fiction

 

edited by Lien Chao and Jim Wong Chu

This new anthology brings together some of the most exciting works of fiction by contemporary Chinese Canadian writers. Representing three generations of Chinese from a variety of backgrounds, including writers born in Canada as well as places outside, presenting a diversity of themes and styles, and set in various geographical locations and time periods, Strike the Wok is a truly kaleidoscopic look at Chinese life from modern Canadian perspectives. Internationally renowned as well as newer voices are included.

"This collection pushes against assumptions about Chinese Canadian literature and shows support for emerging writers."  
— Ricepaper
