All fiction writers write out of their deepest, most intimate personal experiences, even if some of them try to deny it or disguise it.
National Book Award Winner
Susan Choi is the author of the novels The Foreign Student, A Person of Interest, My Education, the Pulitzer Prize-nominated American Woman, and, most recently, Trust Exercise, which won the 2019 National Book Award for Fiction.
Choi has been called a “writer’s writer” due to her precise language, intricately built plots, and impressive control over the page. Her novels tackle a wide array of topics, but questions of identity and the personal impact of politics resonate throughout all of her work. These themes, coupled with her ambitious and masterful style, have cemented her as one of the most important novelists chronicling the diversity and complexity of the American experience.
