Joan is on the brink. Cough drop addict, school bus driver, mixed race daughter of a Maoist English father and Chinese-Canadian mother, Joan struggles for meaning after a friend’s death reveals a secret life. Migration Songs is a lost letter from your past, an intimate experience full of humour and grace.
Anna Quon writes with honesty and compassion, drawing from her own experience growing up half-Chinese on Canada's East Coast.
"An engaging tale, peppered with memorable scenes and lovingly drawn characters. Quon writes with a great deal of humour, and she spins a good yarn." -Sarah Steinberg, Quill & Quire
