Review

"It is exciting to see works that take risks by experimenting with form... This collection pushes against assumptions about Chinese Canadian literature and shows support for emerging writers. In this way, Strike the Wok argues the importance of showcasing contemporary fiction in order to reflect the changing Chinese Canadian literary community." --Ricepaper

From the Inside Flap

A young man contemplates piano lessons and hockey; two misfits in Chinatown discover love; a Vancouver woman fondly recalls her parent's old house in Newfoundland; a girl goes to Canada to escape her father; a tired old woman recalls her origins as an orphan for sale; a teenage girl cuts off her hair and leaves home...

This new anthology brings together some of the most exciting works of fiction by contemprorary 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.
