Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Over the past decade, Sinologists in the West have given much scholarly and critical attention to the study of contemporary Chinese fiction as produced by writers in the People's Republic of China and in Taiwan. In contrast, little scholarly dialogue has concerned fictional works, in Chinese or in any other language, published by writers of Chinese parentage who live outside China or Taiwan and who are known as "overseas Chinese." (A single exception to this is, perhaps, the work of Maxine Hong Kingston.) English language readers interested in contemporary Chinese literature will thus welcome this collection in English of fifteen short stories by the Chinese-Singaporean writer, Rebecca Chua.
