Words with Mei Fong ( 方凤美 )

I think all writers have a weakness for the picturesque. That's good in capturing your reader and putting them in vivid landscapes. But it must be tempered, certainly in the case of non-fiction books, with a search for the truth, which isn't always pretty or grotesque or extreme. Laurent Shervington interviews Mei Fong.

"The show is one of the strangest dance pieces I have ever seen, but one I haven’t stopped talking about since.
