About the book
Dr. Stephanie Han’s award-winning stories cross the borders and boundaries of Hong Kong, Korea, and the United States. This is an intimate look at those who dare to explore the geography of hope and love, struggle with dreams of longing and home, and wander in the myths of memory and desire.
Swimming in Hong Kong (Willow Springs Books) won the Paterson Fiction Prize, and was the finalist for AWP’s Grace Paley Prize for Short Fiction, the Spokane Prize, and the Asian Books Blog Award. Han holds the distinction of being the very first English literature Ph.D. graduate of City University of Hong Kong. She lives in Hawaii, home of her family since 1904.
