In The Eastern Slope Chronicle, Ouyang Yu takes the reader on an epic journey to a famous literary town in inland China with his protagonist, Australian-Chinese poet, Dao Zhuang in search of a new life.

Dao revisits his past in the Cultural Revolution in the 1970s and events that lead up to the June 4 Massacre in 1989.

While working on the English translation of his Chinese novel written during the Massacre, Dao is also doing research for an Australia-based company.

Identity, marginality and postcoloniality are explored on a massive scale in this intense Australian-Chinese story.
