The Yellow Pear is a brave and moving document, using words and art, of what it means to be Canadian.
Co-published with the Burnaby Art Gallery, this is a collection of deeply moving narratives (in both English and Mandarin) and illustrations about the artist's transition to a new life in a new land; his life in Canada resonates with the memories of his past in China, which he fled following the 1989 massacre. The book elicits the pangs of cultural estrangement, the pain of what was left behind, and the joy of new faces and surroundings.
