Kim Fu presents For Today I Am A Boy
In conversation with series curator Ron Hogan of Beatrice.com
Our ongoing Blogger/Author Pairings series features conversations between authors and bloggers who share territories, passions, and preoccupations. Author Kim Fu draws on her heritage as a child of Chinese immigrants in her debut novel For Today I Am A Boy to tell the story of an outwardly typical Chinese immigrant family: a mother, a father, and four sisters—one of whom happens to be (biologically) a boy. Fellow author Justin Torres (We The Animals) writes, “Kim Fu reminds us that the human condition is one of change—of becoming, of overcoming—and this novel, in all its complexity, demonstrates how to do so with grace.” Kim Fu talks about the book and surrounding issues with Blogger/Author Pairings curator Ron Hogan, creator of the seminal literary blog Beatrice.com.
