Xu Xi’s new book This Fish is Fowl is subtitled "Essays of Being.” Her questioning of identity is underpinned by the myriad ways of “being” in this globally transnational existence that has become her life. These quirky, darkly comic and obsessively personal essays emerge from her diverse professional career as a writer, business executive, and educator. But is it fair or foul to seemingly belong everywhere and nowhere? Xu will talk about her life and writing that led to this book and discuss the way this collection came together, followed by a Q&A.
