Afterwork –

Quiet Library on the Edge of Victoria Park (p. 43)

An Indonesian migrant worker in Hong Kong, with the literary character, Nyai Ontosoroh, serving as her role model, she’s been running her own mobile library in Victoria Park since March of 2015. Her ‘afterwork’ time is spent promoting reading within the local Indonesian community. Out and about in a bustling “Javanese village”, why is hers a quiet library?

Excerpt from Paper Dolls (p. 159)

A migrant worker from the Philippines, she’s been working in Isreal for the past eight years, and, most recently, for Chaim, an eighty-three-year-old man who has cancer and for whom a book of poems by Yehuda Amichai is always kept within reach. Belonging to a group of five cross-dressing gay men – the Paper Dolls – Sally is recognized in the play as a “sheyn meydl” by her employer, Chaim, and his daughter. Doesn’t that alone make them a most desirable employer family?
