“Daisy did’t realize that you might share the same bed, but dream different dreams.”
Vanessa Hua, A River of Stars

“In China, camping was considered a Western idiosyncrasy. People did not buy expensive gear to sleep on the ground. Why strive to be uncomfortable, when you had a bed that your ancestors could only dream of?”
Vanessa Hua, Deceit and Other Possibilities
