Grace Yee won the 2024 Victorian Prize for Literature for her verse novel Chinese Fish, the story of a family who migrate from Hong Kong to New Zealand and must navigate patriarchy, racism and assimilation in the 1960s and 1980s. 

It was praised by judges as a book that intelligently ‘braids its modes and forms, its feminist vision, and its literary and conceptual sophistication’. 

Yee discusses her visually rich debut with Inaugural Poet in Residence at University of Melbourne Maxine Beneba Clarke, for this year’s Peter Steele Conversation.
