This event has now passed.Karen Ma's debut novel, Excess Baggage, examines the lives of two Chinese sisters torn by the drama of modern Chinese history and their own ambition. One sister is raised in futuristic, wealthy Japan, the other is 'left behind' in impoverished rural China. The story, which draws on elements from Ma’s life, looks at how dislocation and identity shape the sisters’ lives—a microcosm of the upheaval seen in contemporary China—at a time when migration is reshaping the globe.
