An updated and whimsical new take on what it means to be Canadian. Lau alludes to the personal and political histories of a number of young Asian Canadian characters to explain their unique perspectives of the world, artfully fusing pure delusion and abstract perception with heartbreaking reality. Lau's stories feature the children and grandchildren of immigrants, transnational adoptees and multiracial adults who came of age in the 1990s--all struggling to find a place in the Western world and using the only language they know to express their hopes, fears and expectations.

I don't normally read short stories, but was glad I read this one. She is a very good writer and one to watch.

Heard the book profiled on the radio, and decided to check it out.
Very well written short stories ranging from characters receiving texts from their future selves to the exploits of a youth gang.
