BONNIE CHAU reads from her collection of short stories ALL ROADS LEAD TO BLOOD

All Roads Lead to Blood (2040 Books)

This event is co-sponsored by Kundiman (http://kundiman.org/). Kundiman is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to nurturing generations of writers and readers of Asian American literature.

Unflinching and compelling portrayals of desire fill this award-winning story collection by Bonnie Chau. Chau explores the lives of young women, focusing on love, heritage, and memory, presenting fresh perspectives of second-generation Chinese-Americans.

Moving back and forth between California and New York, and ranging as far away as Paris, Chau’s exquisitely written stories are bold, highly imaginative, and haunting, featuring unique characters who defiantly exert their individuality.

Selected as the Grand Prize Winner for the 2040 Books Awards Program by Mat Johnson.

Bonnie Chau is from Southern California, where she ran writing programs at 826LA. She received her MFA in fiction and translation from Columbia University. Her writing has appeared in Flaunt, Drunken Boat, Cosmonauts Avenue, The Offing, Joyland, and other journals. A Kundiman fellow, she works at an independent bookstore in Brooklyn and is assistant web editor at Poets & Writers.
