Centred on a community of immigrants who have traded their endangered lives as artists in China and Taiwan for the constant struggle of life at the poverty line in 1990s New York City, the seven stories that make up Sour Heart examine how history and family shape our lives. From the young woman coming to terms with her grandmother's role in the Cultural Revolution, to the daughter struggling to understand where her family ends and she begins, these vibrant, raw and powerful stories illuminate the complex and messy inner lives of girls struggling to define themselves.
