Ma-Lai, Mary Chan


Mary Chan Ma-lai wasn't given her own name. Her family called her Ah Ngan, "tiny and thin." She was born in 1950 on Little Salted Fish Street in Macao, to a Tanka family. The Tanka were the boat dwellers of China, living on wooden scows and junks in the great Chinese port cities such as Shanghai and Hong Kong. Considered inferior, they were not permitted to settle on land or marry land dwellers. Mary's family is desperately poor. Mary is nearly blind from cataracts and stooped over from osteoporosis. One could not imagine a less privileged life. Yet Mary Chan Ma-lai's is an indomitable spirit.Ma-Lai, Mary Chan is the author of 'Egg Woman's Daughter' with ISBN 9789627160533 and ISBN 9627160539.
