Inside Outside: Helene Wong (2016)

THE MICHAEL KING MEMORIAL LECTURE

In 1985 the late historian Michael King published Being Pakeha, a book which fathoms what it is to be a non-Maori New Zealander. Three decades on, the accomplished Chinese-NZ writer, reviewer, actor and director Helene Wong has published her memoir, Being Chinese: A New Zealander’s Story, which explores the experience of being of Chinese descent, being both part of this place but also set apart.
