Lok Fung explores the political, linguistic and cultural tensions of being both from Hong Kong and a feminist in her first major bilingual collection in English. A prolific poet and critic, she writes in Cantonese, sprinkling her work with pop culture references, and engaging directly with the current turmoil in Hong Kong (and broader Chinese) politics and society, as well as the shifting interventions with the international community. Fung is best known for her award-winning Chinese collection Flying Coffin. Her interests include cultural and film theory, gender studies, popular culture, performance studies, cross-dressing and fashion.
