In Salt Fish Girl, Larissa Lai reworks the origin myth of the West by merging it with the stories of Nu Wa, the "maker" in a Chinese origin myth, who forfeits her omnipotence for the company of mankind and 3of Miranda Ching, a solitary young girl, branded "alien" by her ethnicity, which is emblematized by the strange odor of durian fruit that lingers about her. Lai cleverly engineers the suturing of the mythological past of the East and the futuristic society of the capitalist West, but she inadvertently weaves a tale of female marginality. Moreover, even though Lai endeavors to redeem strangeness and difference as a way one can "write her body into the future" ("Future Asians" 169), her text evidences that it is this very difference that relegates the female body as a palimpsest, which carries the history of their exclusion, exploitation, and dislocation into the future. This essay examines Lai`s insistence on obscuring moments of historical and cultural rupture in order to contrive a collective "herstory" of Asian/Asian North American women, which ladens them with a legacy of dislocation.
