hold my hand is a collection of interrelated short stories centered on a Chinese American family. This collection is about family and love at its core, and explores the way in which family members love and how that can impact the way children love. The stories also interrogate the way in which the politics and influence of gender, class, and race interact with the characters and their narratives. This is a thesis that travels, from Oxford to New York to Florida and back, in a migration that is in search of love, connection, and home.
