by (Author)

  • 8,344 Words

Jim Wong-Chu was the founder of the Asian Canadian Writers’ Workshop which spawned many literary stars, including Madeleine Thien, Denise Chong, and Wayson Choy. When he passed away in 2017, at the age of sixty-eight, he left not only a void in the Asian Canadian writing and publishing community but also a legacy of his own work that was never fully recognized.
Jim’s poems speak eloquently to the Chinese experience in North America, both historical and present-day. This book includes Jim’s evocative Chinatown photographs, revealing the soul of a community threatened by gentrification and displacement.
