A graphic memoir about life in the forgotten refugee communities of Hong Kong.
The House on Horse Mountain tells the story of a young girl growing up in one of the many refugee communities that dotted the hillsides of Hong Kong in the 1960s. It follows the story of the diligent but clumsy Ann as she runs chores around town, gets into trouble at school, and tries to win her parents’ approval. The book is based on my mother’s stories about her childhood.
To be released some time in 2021-2022.
