Here’s what people have been saying about Kirsteen Zimmern’s The Eurasian Face:
“Zimmern … has taken what she called “a fleeting glimpse into the lives and faces of a number of Eurasians,” and ended up fascinated by what she discovered. She has produced a lovely and evocative book to tell their stories.” –- Asia Sentinel
“Half Chinese and half Scottish, Kirsteen Zimmern is Eurasian, although you wouldn’t think it to look at her. She gets this reaction all the time, shock and awe from both East and West as she reveals her ‘other side’ by speaking fluent Cantonese. This was among many reasons why, despite being a mother to four and a working barrister, she began assembling The Eurasian Face – a handsome new hardbound book published by Blacksmith.” –- Time Out Hong Kong
“In a city like Hong Kong, which is made up almost entirely of immigrants, ask the question, “Where are you from?” and you’re unlikely to receive a straightforward answer. … One of the most fascinating aspects of the book is that it offers not only an insight into people’s self-perceptions but also a glimpse into history, in particular how attitudes towards interracial unions were perceived in the not-too-distant past.” –- HK Magazine
