Description

In her English-language debut, Yen Ge explores isolation in nine iridescent, witty and wondrous tales. Both contemporary and ancient, real and surreal, the stories in Elsewhere range from China to Dublin to London and Stockholm. From a group of writers lounging on the edge of a disaster zone to a Mandarin ostracised from his old court, desperately trying to avoid a threat to his life; from a woman who inexplicably loses her voice, and the poet who steals her words, to a couple who meet all too fleetingly at a cinema in Dublin, these are strange and beguiling stories of dispossession, longing and the diasporic experience.
