From the HKU Library website:
How much is a writer the character(s) of her novels? Authorial distance can often be hard to gauge in books that are supposedly "fiction." Come and join this provocative conversation between author Xu Xi and journalist Richard Lord as they discuss Xu's new novel Habit of a Foreign Sky. Xu will also give a brief, introductory reading from the book.More information about the talk can be found here.
Xu Xi's creative non-fiction was published in issue #6 of Cha.
