Catch up with The Shift Bookclub Live with Jean Kwok
The author of The Leftover Woman talks being an immigrant, motherhood, unexpected divorce and the price of beauty
Just a quick one to let you know that this week’s The Shift Bookclub Live with Jean Kwok is now live on YouTube. Thank you to everyone who came. If you weren’t able to make it, we had a fascinating conversation that ranged from how it felt to grow up as the youngest girl in a Chinese family to what it means to be a leftover woman to unexpected divorce in your 50s to the fine line between ballroom dancing and stripping to Icelandic volcanoes! I hope you enjoyed the book - and if you haven’t quite finished it, don’t worry, there are no spoilers!
And don’t forget, our next bookclub live, with the one and only Nina Stibbe talking about Went to London, Took the Dog, menopause, meltdown, midlife separation and much more, is on Wednesday 13th December at 7pm GMT/2pm EST. I’ll send a link to join nearer the time.
