Some of my published stories, and a few starred book reviews. ✨
Chinatown Belongs to All of Us
Puking in my wedding dress
A groundbreaking work of journalism, Meet Me in Venice provides a personal, intimate account of Chinese individuals in the very act of migration.
Ma expertly channels the yearning and base desires of her subjects through intimate conversation and cultural analysis in a narrative full of genuine compassion and appreciation.
It's easy for people to pass migrants by - but if you stop and talk to them, each one has an amazing story.
South China Morning Post
Ma’s book fits nicely with other pathbreaking journalistic works on migration and modernization in China.
