I just received my copy of IMPRINT 2010, the Hong Kong Women in Publishing Society’s annual anthology.
I’ve been contributing to IMPRINT for several years and for the past few have held an ‘editorial’ position, which really just amounts to coming up with a quotation for the back cover.
This year’s is a Chinese proverb:
A book is like a garden carried in the pocket.
In the 2010 edition, I crossed genres and cultures, abandoning my essays about cross-cultural relationships for a fictional piece about an aging Indian security guard working at a Hong Kong gold shop.
The book is filled with short stories, essays, memoirs, poems, photos, and drawings–some about Hong Kong or other parts of Asia, and some not.
