The Lift, Pan Zijie , single work short story (p. 3-9)
Vostoki"Someone said I should go to the Sze Yup temple", Pan Zijie , single work poetry
This collection deals with wandering--- shifts from East to West, and the borderlands in between. Chance encounters happen, identities become uncertain, elusive relationships form and then drift apart. These poems have a distinctly Australian feel, as they retrieve with precision the memories of growing up and exploring the Australian outback, then relocation to urban environments as an adult. Yet, from time to time, the stirrings of connections with a Chinese past suddenly manifest themselves as solid fragments of the poetic imagination of the writer.
