Migrant Writing in Quebec: Female Mobility in Kim Thúy’s Ru

    OnderzoeksoutputAcademic

    Samenvatting

    This chapter presents the experience of mobility as one of duality, an
    experience of both rupture and continuity as expressed in the
    poetic prose of Kim Thúy, resident in Quebec since her departure
    from her native Vietnam at ten years of age. Describing an experience
    of fragmented simultaneity that is reflected in her narrative
    style, den Toonder locates Thúy’s transnational mobility in a wider
    space of transculturality that transgresses divisions between nations
    and cultures, and defies the boundaries of migration, exile and
    expatriation.
