Her most recent novel, What Are You Going Through, was published by Riverhead Books in 2020. Her other honors include four Pushcart Prizes, a Whiting Award, a Berlin Prize Fellowship, and the Rome Prize in Literature. Her work has appeared in several anthologies, including The Best American Short Stories 2019 and four anthologies of Asian American literature.
