Our mood board series continues with Sheung-King’s critically acclaimed debut novel, You Are Eating an Orange. You Are Naked., which was released by Book*hug Press on October 27th. We’ve talked about the book’s vivid imagery before, as well as its myriad of influences, all of which it distills into a precise, reflective beauty. We think author Casey Plett says it best: “This rare, arresting book asks the reader to hold a pair of lovers close. A beautiful, intelligent portrait of estrangement and intimacy.”
Sheung-King is a writer and educator. His work has appeared in PRISM International, The Shanghai Literary Review, and The Humber Literary Review, among others. He is currently a lecturer at the University of Guelph and Sheridan College. You Are Eating an Orange. You Are Naked. is Sheung-King’s debut book. Originally from Hong Kong, he lives in Toronto.
