Hi! I’m Jen Chan, the blogger behind Classic Jenisms, which is a literary blog that features essays on why reading literature matters to our daily living, as well as interviews with poets, novelists and booksellers based in Hong Kong and China.
After poring over Shakespearean sonnets and ploughing through Dickensian novels in the land of Yorkshire puddings and Earl Grey tea bags, I have since returned to Hong Kong with a passion to make English reading more interesting to more people.
My favourite things are colour-coded bookshelves, Lonely Planet maps and pumpkins.
I hope you enjoy reading my blog – any comments or feedback would be much welcomed and appreciated!
