Out of Place is part memoir, part journey. In this poetry collection Kate Rogers reflects on her years in Hong Kong, and travels back to her childhood self and the early lives of her parents and immigrant ancestors. The epigraph by philosopher Edward W. Said, author of Orientalism, raises the essential question posed by this book: How do we decide who we are when "all families invent their parents and children, give each of them a story, character, fate, even a language"?
Born in Toronto, Kate Rogers lectures in Literature and Media Studies at the Community College of City University, Hong Kong. Her poetry about the Hong Kong protests appeared in The Guardian and the Asia Literary Review. Kate's most recent book is Foreign Skin (Aeolus House).
