The Eastern Slope Chronicle is a novel about migration, focussing on Dao Zhuang, a male Chinese migrant who seems unable to belong anywhere. It is also about the protagonist’s self-discovery and discovery of his home and host countries. This paper examines the impact of migration on gender norms and how tensions between different gender norms, particularly models for masculinity, play out in the novel.
