The Chinese-Canadian author Kim Fu read from her debut novel For Today I Am a Boy (January 2014) at Greenlight Bookstore. She was joined by Ron Hogan, founder of Beatrice.com, for conversation about the book. For Today I Am a Boy chronicles the struggle faced by the narrator and protagonist, Peter, girl born with the body of a boy. Adding to Peter’s struggle is his immigrant parents’ desire to both assimilate Canadian culture and maintain their family lineage. With three sisters, Peter lacks the brother necessary to divert her father’s intense fascination on raising a son.
