An irresistible shift of global power renders awareness about global competence ever more important. Through her collection of vignettes and articles about Asia and the world, Alicia Su Lozeron brings the Asian segment onto the western stage. She aims to raise that awareness and connects the West to the East by researching and analysing facts as well as describing experiences of cross-cultural nature. Her content is compelling, and her tales, beautifully narrated.
This is a collection of articles from the author’s website Asia-America Connection Society as well extracts from Lozeron’s first book – a fictionalised autobiography called The Un-death of Me. Some of it was interesting, some of it was dull. The articles could have done with some expansion because they feel like they’re summaries of longer works. Some start to make a point and then just end. Multiple articles, about Las Vegas were boring. I wasn’t that fussed by the whole thing although the last few chapters about world-wide traditions with respect to parents, the elderly, children, birth and death were worth the effort.
