I'm reading a 15-minute short story entitled “Versus”, which airs Thursday, December 30 at 2:30pm on The Round-Up, and again that evening at 10:40pm on Between the Covers. It's a lovely little story from the point of view of a 13-year-old Canadian Eurasian girl as she struggles to deal with her divided senses of loyalty and fairness when her father marries a woman from China.
Hope you had/are having a lovely Christmas holiday!
For people interested in find the story “Versus.” It is from the anthology Strike the Wok, stories by contemporary Chinese Canadian writers. It is co-edited by my friend Jim Wong-Chu and Lien Chao.
