Name: Ha Jin
Hails from: Boston, MA (born in Liaoning, China)
Known for: Telling the stories that no one else does (or can). Jin has published five novels, three books of poetry, and multiple collections of short stories–allowing him to stack up a gobsmacking collection of literary honors, from the National Book Award to the PEN/Faulkner Award.
The author just released a new story collection, A Good Fall, which explores otherness through the Chinese American experience in twelve pieces. You can read more about it in Colm Toibin’s NY Times book review, or bite the bullet and just order your copy now. Odds are, you won’t want your money back.
