stories from China
Apologies Forthcoming, winner of the 2007 Tartt Fiction Award, is a collection of stories about the Chinese Cultural Revolution and its aftermath, written by my brilliant friend and fellow Zoetroper Xujun Eberlein . The characters who inhabit these pages are fascinating, not only because of the ways in which their culture and experiences differ from those of Western readers but for the deep psychological and emotional connections that render our human truths the same.

Here's an especially interesting interview with Xujun published in Pif magazine..
