The Marks Left on Her
Di was born and raised in Hong Kong but spent the majority of her adult life in the UK. She is of both Jewish and Hong Kongese descent. Her debut novel 'The Marks Left on Her' started off as a way to attribute language to her pain and recovery in an attempt to make sense of it all. Soon it grew into a small collection of buried memories that evolved into a self-examination of what it means to be a girl, a woman and a survivor.
In her own words:
"There are innumerable girls and women out there who continue to suffer or have suffered and survived. This book is for them, so they can be reminded and know that they are not alone."
