Today's excerpts are a mix of fiction and nonfiction.

For the former, we have Jessica Zhan Mei Yu's debut novel But the Girl.

The novel follows Girl, who's born in Australia to Malaysian immigrant parents; an academic scholarship that takes her away to the United kingdom provides the freedom she needs to begin unpacking her identity.

You can read the excerpt from But the Girl at Literary Hub.

For the latter, we have author Amy Tan's backyard bird diary, excerpted in The Paris Review.
