Anna Ling Kaye

About the Story

In “Red Egg and Ginger,” Anna Ling Kaye presents a family, a community, whole and complete. Mei is a character standing at a threshold, between worlds, communities, even countries. And while we never cross that threshold, Kaye’s precise use of language infuses every moment with the ambivalent agony of possibility.
