For Today I Am a Boy, a Novel by Kim Fu

Monday, January 27, 2014

Kim Fu tells us about her debut new novel, For Today I Am a Boy. It follows Peter Huan, who grows up with three sisters and, as the only boy in the family, is expected to live up to his immigrant father's ideal of power and masculinity. But Peter has different ideas for his life—he’s certain he is a girl.

"(O)pen to the complexities of it and...interested in seeing parallels with their own lives" is an attitude that would most definitely have been a welcome element in conducting this interview, rather than dispassionately reading a list of questions off a card with little interest or thought given to their content.
