Celebrated internationally for a prolific, “achingly beautiful” (Los Angeles Times Book Review) body of work across a variety of genres, Chinese émigré Ha Jin is the author of a score of novels, volumes of poetry, story collections, and a book of essays. His many honors include the National Book Award, two PEN/Faulkner Awards, the Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction, and election to the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
