Home Sickness

Chih-ying LAY, Darryl STERK (Translator)

    Research output: Scholarly Books | Reports | Literary WorksBook (Translator)


    Fiction. Asian & Asian American Studies. LGBTQIA Studies. The characters in these ten stories are longing for escape and attempt to leave home, but inevitably and perhaps ironically find themselves homesick. Chih-Ying Lay, a Montreal-based expatriate from Taiwan familiar with both homesickness and home sickness, probes our desperate need for home, often matched with an equally desperate need to get away from it. Lay's characters are outsiders, whether queer, indigenous, unloved or lost, and each discovers that home is not the sanctuary it was meant to be. Sometimes, they find a place to call their very own, as if to tell the reader: You can, too.
