Drawing home

Internationally acclaimed debut novelist Kim Fu returns to her poetic roots

PROFILE

When Kim Fu thinks back to her “intense and prolific” time as an MFA student in creative writing at the University of British Columbia, one conversation in particular stands out. After reading an early draft of her thesis – a novel manuscript – Fu’s supervisor asked her what her expectations were. “I said, ‘I just want it to be something that I can hold in my hand. I just wanted to see a book,’” Fu recalls. “He thought that was a realistic way of looking at it.”
