More About This Title El escritor como migrante


Much as exile was a key theme of 20th-century literature, the theme of migration has emerged as a keystone of 21st-century writing. Drawing from his own experience, from the Chinese Popular Army during the Cultural Revolution, to his position as a professor at the University of Chicago, Ha Jin approaches other exiled literary figures in search of commonalities and differences across place and time. In this book, he asks fascinating questions about language, migration, and place in an increasingly globalized world.


Ha Jin was a member of the Popular Liberation Army during the Chinese Cultural Revolution, but he left for the United States in 1979. He is the recipient of the Faulkner Prize, the National Book Award, and the Asian American Literary Award, among others.
