You Are Eating an Orange. You Are Naked.

Sheung-King’s debut novel, You Are Eating an Orange. You Are Naked. (Book*hug Oct 2020) is an intimate novel of memory and longing that challenges Western tropes and Orientalism. Embracing the playful surrealism of Haruki Murakami and the atmospheric narratives of filmmaker Wong Kar-wai, Sheung-King’s novel is at once lyrical and punctuated, and wholly unique, and marks the arrival of a bold new voice in Asian-Canadian literature. From Toronto to Macau to Hong Kong, Tokyo and Prague, this unexpected love story takes readers on a journey that both questions and delights.
