Memoir-essays from an award-winning writer, exploring race, sex, familial expectations, and identity.

Raised by strict, religious, Malaysian Chinese parents in Brisbane's southern suburbs, Yen-Rong Wong internalised an idealised image of a Chinese-presenting girl at a young age. As she grew into young adulthood, she began to bristle against the weight of these expectations and the pressure to conform to cultural notions of family and future. However, she couldn't find any stories to help her forge her own path - so she decided to write one for herself.

In this compelling collection of essays, Wong blends memoir and cultural criticism to interrogate perceptions around sex, racism, and familial dynamics. Laying bare her own life, she examines the joys and difficulties that lie at the intersections of her identity.

Brave, unflinching, and with a dash of wry humour, Me, Her, Us is a provocative book for our times.
