Product description

Synopsis

Drawing on the author's own cross-cultural inheritance, these stories range across a series of settings and backgrounds. From a Chinese son gambling with professional moumers to a mixed-race couple who experience a close encounter with an alien being, Ho Davies' characters share an instantly recognisable sense of displacement - these are children of one century, adults of the next - caught between debts to their parents and what they owe their offspring. Sharply observed and compassionate, Equal Love demonstrates the talent of a truly original writer, whose work has already earned comparison with that of Raymond Carver, James Joyce and V. S. Naipaul.

About the Author

Peter Ho Davies was born in 1966 to Welsh and Chinese parents grew up in Coventry, studied at Cambridge University and is currently teaching in the US. His prize-winning stories have appeared in many magazines and anthologies and his first collection, The Ugliest House in the World, is also published by Granta Books.
