QUEEN ZOMIA is a new work by Royce Ng which traces the histories of opium through the figure of Olive Yang, the bisexual, cross-dressing warlord who controlled the illicit opium and heroin trade in South East Asia. QUEEN ZOMIA uses expanded media based strategies to communicate the labyrinthine narratives of intertwining national histories which intersect in the Asian opium trade.
