WHITE JADE & OTHER STORIES is a collection of seven short stories and the title novella by the celebrated Asian-American author of LIPSTICK & OTHER STORIES, winner of the 2002 American Book Award. Alex Kuo's writing refuses to be pinned down, traveling from playful wit and searing sarcasm in eastern Oregon, to sorrowful tragedy in Shanghai. While the stories are dizzyingly smart and mischievous, the novella illuminates the depth of Kuo's talent for humanizing historical circumstances with fiercely vivid characters. White Jade deconstructs and re-imagines the purpose and power of the literary autobiography. -- Aimee Phan, author of WE SHOULD NEVER MEET I first fell in love with American literature through the poems and stories of Alex Kuo. This gorgeous and intelligent book confirms that love. I'll be reading Alex until the end of days. -- Sherman Alexie, author of FLIGHT and INDIAN KILLER
