A seminal time in Caroline Wong’s life occurred in her early teens when her family moved from Southern China to Canada. It led her to write poems and stories following the interior journeys of a transplanted woman. In Primal Sketches (Signature Editions $17.95) Wong writes of hiking in B.C., Spain’s Camino de Santiago, the Yangtze River in China, loss, death and hope. She also references two ancient Chinese poets, Li Po and Li Qing Zhao, both of whom were exiles. Wong is a graduate of SFU’s Writer’s Studio. She lived in Vancouver’s Chinatown with her family from the 1950s to the early 1960s and now lives in Burnaby. 9781773240862
