Fictions: Only Connect

Hay Festival 2017, 

Sudjic’s debut Sympathy tells the story of a young Englishwoman’s fixation with a Japanese writer living in New York. Inspired by three figures who lived at pivotal moments in Chinese-American history, Ho Davies’ The Fortunes explores what it is like to feel, and be treated, like a foreigner in the country you call home.
