Grace Yee's poems reveal the Chinese immigrant experience

From Easter Monday, 11:05 am on 1 April 2024

Grace Yee's book, Chinese Fish, is a collection of poems, which tells the story of the Chin family, Chinese immigrants who move to New Zealand in the 1960s. 

The poems explore themes of migration, family dynamics, cultural clashes, and the search for belonging. It's written in a unique style that blends poetry with prose and historical fragments, offering a rich and complex portrait of the immigrant experience.
