The peril of passing and failing

Edited by Hoa Pham (author of Vixen), Peril is an online journal which focuses on Asian Australian arts and culture. Its latest endeavour, Issue Six, explores ‘passing, failing’, an experience that many people can relate to. 

‘Perfumed lotuses, dirt and daffodils’ is my interpretation of ‘passing, failing’: the struggle to reconcile cultural expectations with the need to be true to oneself. It forms part of Issue Six’s collection of fiction, interviews, articles, and poetry. To read ‘Perfumed lotuses, dirt and daffodils’, click here.
