Melbourne Writers Festival 2019 - SL Lim: Real Differences
Described as Sally Rooney-esque, SL Lim’s Real Differences is filled with unforgettable characters all looking for the answer to the question of what a good life should look like. They discuss this gripping debut with Shu-Ling Chua.
SL Lim was born in Singapore, moved to Sydney at the age of one, and has spent a good part of their life toggling back and forth. Their second novel Revenge will be published by Transit Lounge in 2020. They have lived in Slovakia for a bit, hates injustice, heterosexuality, the family, and the nation state, and has two pet birds almost as old as they are.
Shu-Ling Chua has written for Feminartsy, Peril Magazine and Meanjin, among others. She is working on a collection of essays on coming of age as a young Asian-Australian woman and is a 2018 Wheeler Centre Hot Desk Fellow. Her work focuses on sex, culture, femininity and growing up.
