Legend Press are delighted to give away 5 copies of The Life of a Banana to Nee Hao readers, the debut novel by PP Wong. The novel was recently described by The Independent as ‘bursting with original and exciting flavours’. PP Wong was the first British Chinese novelist to be published in the UK and is one of the most exciting debuts of the year.
The Life of a Banana is an intensely intimate, compelling and original story about the life of a British born Chinese girl growing up in London and the prejudice and isolation she faces. A ‘banana’ (white on the inside and yellow on the outside) is what Chinese people call a Westernized Asian.
PP Wong was born in London in 1982. Her parents, both Chinese and originally from Singapore, moved between London and Asia during her childhood. She experienced extreme bullying throughout her schooling in the UK. PP Wong worked as an actress for six years, with her first job aged 15 when she was cast as ‘Screaming Vietnamese girl’ in a James Bond film.
