Synopsis

𝐍𝐨𝐫𝐚 π‰π’πš 𝐐𝐒𝐚𝐨-𝐁𝐫𝐒𝐝𝐠𝐞𝐬' home is everywhere and nowhere - from China to New Zealand, and from the UK to the world. Born in the cultural centre of China as a descendent of Confucius, Nora grew up influenced by western culture. She constantly struggles with the inner conflict of embracing the dual cultures from the East and West.

Nora's campus scandal with her English teacher 𝐓𝐨𝐦 𝐍𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐨𝐧 makes her to move to New Zealand to start a new chapter of life. Her sexual experience with π‰πšπ¬π¨π§ 𝐌𝐒𝐭𝐜𝐑𝐞π₯π₯, her lifelong friendship with 𝐄π₯𝐨𝐒𝐬𝐞 π…πžπ πžπ«, her entangled relationship with 𝐊𝐞𝐯𝐒𝐧 𝐘𝐞𝐰, and her interactions with people from different cultures and backgrounds all lead Nora to discover her multicultural identities, to find a sense of belonging and to fight the battle against racial bias and discrimination.

Everyone has a story to tell. Here is your chance to listen to an ethnic minority's eleven stories on stereotypes, identity, loneliness, relationship, sexual harassment, race, media manipulation, and the hidden history.

You may resonate with Nora's life as a global citizen who has experienced the cultural similarities and differences between different countries. You may understand international students and new migrants struggles and difficulties living abroad. Most of all, you may develop the compassion to people around you and try to understand each other from different perspectives.

Eloquent, pure and completely stylistic, here lies a fresh voice in fiction from a Chinese New Zealand writer. 𝑻𝒉𝒆 π‘°π’π’—π’Šπ’”π’Šπ’ƒπ’π’† π‘»π’‰π’Šπ’“π’… π‘ͺ𝒖𝒍𝒕𝒖𝒓𝒆 𝑨𝒅𝒖𝒍𝒕 is the perfect read for anyone who feels they are not being seen or heard.

No man is an island in the current world. Everybody is connected. We all have stories to tell. Let's listen to each other one by one with a curious and open mind.
