Product description

About the Author

Hung Siu, author of The Color of Skin, was born in 1947, son-number-two from an elderly Chinese immigrant and a young Caribbean woman. Soon after a fire broke up in his parents' grocery store, his parents divorced. At that time, some of their children were primary school kids, others still attending kindergarten, and some still toddlers. Many years later, one of his father's relatives told him that his father was married to a Chinese woman and that the author has a Chinese sister, a sister the same age as his Caribbean mother. The relative also gave the author a letter to send to the Chinese embassy, which made it possible for him to find his Chinese family. After knowing about his father's traditions, he exhumed the remains from an unhappy Chinese immigrant languishing in a foreign grave, an immigrant who had died more than three decades ago, to bring him home, to the ancestors' grave in China, thus complying with an ancient tradition, performing the ancient ritual for the Hakka's second burial. He then had the opportunity to study both sides of the family when he stayed with his Chinese sister in Malaysia, a woman older than his Caribbean mother. He visited the grave of his father's first wife, the wife who had been waiting for a husband who had promised to come back but never returned. He visited the ancestors' village in China and discovered that his father had a resting place reserved for him. That the saying east is east, west is west, and twain will never meet, had truly become true in his family.
