The Expatriates is set in contemporary Hong Kong and is about three very different women living in the American expat community, but I think it is mostly about the bonds of women and motherhood. Expats in Hong Kong can live a rarefied life of cocktails and dinner parties. In my novel, Hilary Starling has a dinner party where her life starts to unravel. Right before, as if she can sense the impending chaos, she lies in bed, unwilling to get up. At least, there is delicious food on the menu, including this Peking Duck Spring Roll.
Hope you enjoy!
