    About this book

Dorothy Tse's stories sometimes start in a vein of innocent realism, but she invariably brings us up short with an abrupt twist: dreamscapes descend and the pages become populated with ever weirder characters. Not only do strange things happen, they are juxtaposed in ways that confound all logical expectations. This collection of 13 short stories is not for the faint-hearted-violent and sensual elements abound and limbs, even heads, are lopped off with alarming regularity. Yet scenes are sometimes so outrageous that they make us laugh, and Dorothy's bold thematic and narrative experiments yield results that are alternately beguiling and deeply disturbing.
 
    About the author

Dorothy Tse is at the forefront of a talented new generation of writers who are exploring issues of identity from the unique vantage point of Hong Kong. She is the founding editor of the literary magazine Fleurs des Lettres and the winner of several major literary awards. Snow and Shadow is the first collection of her stories to be translated into English.
