When Great-Grandpa Tong emigrated from China to Siam as a young man in the early decades of the 20 th century,he unwittingly brought with him a family curse…Spanning three generations of a Chinese-Thai family in Thailand, Memories of the Memories of the Black Rose Cat is an epic saga of immigrant life. In her characteristic magical realist style, Veeraporn Nitiprapha chronicles the family’s adventures and tragedies against the backdrop of a tumultuous century to create a unique, vivid and poignant portrayal of Chinese diaspora life. A best-seller in Thailand, the original Thai-language edition of Memories of the Memories of the Black Rose Cat won the national SEA-Write Award in 2018.“Riveting! A fascinating melange of Marquezian magical realism and a 21st century version of Dream of the Red Chamber. Tragically sweet with a twisted ending that makes readers wonder – like the forgotten history of the Chinese Diaspora in Thailand – if we really exist.” ~ Wassana Wongsurawat, Assistant Professor of Modern Chinese History, Chulalongkorn University
