Though I Get Home: Asian American Writers' Workshop

  • AAWW 112 W 27 St Ste 600 NY, NY 10001 United States (map)

Join AAWW for a reading about outsiders in fiction with Let’s No One Get Hurt author Jon PinedaThe Affliction author C. Dale Young, and Though I Get Home author YZ Chin.


"A haunting, surprising, and rebellious collection that contains multitudes." Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

In these stories, characters navigate fate via deft sleights of hand: a grandfather gambles on the monsoon rains, a consort finds herself a new assignment, and a religious man struggles to keep his demons at bay. Central to the book is Isabella Sin, a small-town girl—and frustrated writer—transformed into a prisoner of conscience in Malaysia’s most notorious detention camp.
