“They came from the south of China to the Gold Mountain of Johannesburg, reckoning to stay for a short time, work hard and return home.”
All Under Heaven is the story of a Chinese family in South Africa from the early twentieth century to the first years of the twenty-first. It follows the lives of three generations in a country where Chinese once were classified ‘non-white’ and now are deemed not to have been ‘previously disadvantaged’.
Struggling with questions of identity and belonging, neither Eastern nor Western, not Asian, not African, the family lives in limbo. Where is home – at the tip of Africa or across the sea, as it was for their ancestors?
