Yiwei Hu is a fill-in-the-blanks questionnaire, a nine-digit bar code at the University of Toronto, a bookmark stuck between pages 101 and 102 of 1984, and a lab coat, among many other lab coats. When the city gets cold, she buttons up her un-zippable parka and wishes dearly for Californication. H.G. Wells foresaw a century ago that we are all the invisible man. While embarking on an exciting journey of higher education, Yiwei is composing two novels, a collection of short stories, and a play. She’s also dallying—albeit in vain—with poetry.
