Vivian or Xiyan Bi – (her name means Bright Swallow in Man- darin) moved from China to Australia in 1990. Her memoir is a story of hope celebrating resilience after many personal hard- ships meted out on the family by the Cultural Revolution. 

Vivian now lives and works in Sydney and is an honorary asso- ciate of the University of Sydney. Come and hear all about her life during this fascinating interview with Jane Sydenham-Kwiet. 

I would recommend this book for nomination to the Stella Prize for literature for 2020’ – Lisa Hi
