The embargo’s been lifted, and I’m pleased to announce that I’m on the line-up of the 2017 Sydney Writer’s Festival. The theme this year is “Refuge,” and I’m on a panel called The Writer’s Habitat with some seriously bright lights on Thursday 25 May at 10am talking homeland, homesickness and the bittersweet ache of the wandering heart.
Speaking of which -reminds me of the song we used to play before the show every night in Shanghai:
Chinatown, my Chinatown
Where the lights are low
Hearts that know no other land
Drifting to and fro…
Hope to see some of you at the Festival.
