For this session, we are going to read the short novel Interior Chinatown by Charles Yu (2020) which uses the screenplay format to tell the tale of Willis Wu, the "Generic Asian Man" who is stuck playing "Background Oriental Male" and occasionally "Delivery Guy" in the fictional police procedural "Black and White" but who longs to be "Kung Fu Guy" on screens worldwide. We will then discuss various intermedial relations that the novel fosters.


We have a copy of the book, so please, get in touch with us in case you want one too!
