Discussion Notes: The Wig
Find this week’s story here: The Wig by Han Dong.
Next week’s story: The Story of the Girl Whose Birds Flew Away by Bushra al-Fadil.
The Literary Roadhouse hosts, minus Rammy, discuss The Wig by Han Dong. Maya loved the story, and got a lot out of what it says about our obsession with presentation. However, despite her best efforts, she couldn’t convince Gerald to love it too. Meanwhile, Anais really enjoyed the visuals, and other aspects which were enhanced by an interview with the author which she discusses on the show. For aspiring writers, pay attention to how the author introduces and draws a character that would unlikable in less deft hands.
Finally, and perhaps unsurprisingly, the game is about…wigs!
